Children’s Programs

It’s November and that means our Children’s Programming is getting into the holiday spirit!

Keep an eye out for our Wintertime Slime registration. This program has limited space and will be happening one weekend in early December. 

Children will make 3-4 types of winter-themed slime, while working in small groups. Everyone will have lots slime to take home at the end of the program!

Books & Babies: Tuesday mornings, 10:00 am – 11:00 am – After your morning walk in the fresh, Fall air, come and visit this drop-in group for parents and children 2 years old and under. A group full of great conversation, and a safe place for children to socialize with others their own age.

LEGO Club: Wednesday afternoons, 3:30 pm – 4:30 pm – This drop-in program for children ages 6-12 has a brand new build challenge every single week. As your child’s skills grow they can also attempt the weekly “Expert Build Challenge”. LEGO CLUB is often not just LEGO! We also have lots of fun incorporating other STEM activities and experiments each week along with building our LEGO creations.

On Thursday, November 14th, from 6:15pm – 7:00 pm we will be having Sleepy Story Time. Stop by the library in your pajamas, and snuggle up for 45 mins of stories @ YOUR LIBRARY

Story Time: Friday mornings, 10:30 am – 11:30 am -This is a drop-in group full of singing, dancing, and stories. Each week we have a themed craft that connects to what we learned from our story.
