Traveler’s Tales- A Night in Australia.

We will be rescheduling this Traveler’s Tales event in the New Year. For now, we will just have to keep dreaming about the sunny south!

Teens put their chef skills to the test during our Ramen Noodle Challenge—did you think they’d be able to create both a savoury and a sweet version of Ramen? Neither did we!  Don’t forget to register for our Annual Gingerbread House Decorating Competition. The challenge this year is to create a Gingerbread Dog House!

Children’s Programs

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

Be sure to watch for the Gingerbread House building night and our Wintertime Slime workshop registrations!

Books & Babies: Tuesday mornings, 10:00 am – 11:00 am – 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.

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. Visit Story Time, and leave with new friends and amazing art creations. For the month of November, we will be reading about hibernation, the beginning of winter, and SNOW!
