Children’s Programs

Wondering what the Children’s Department has been up to? We have converted all of our in-person programming into Virtual Programming!

Scientists in Situ: Scientists in Situ is your child’s chance to be a scientist in their own home. Take home a kit with all of the supplies you need to interact in this program Live online. Follow along, ask questions, and make discoveries with our Head Scientist in real-time! Once you try one program you’ll want to sign up for them all.

LEGO Club: We miss hanging out with our LEGO Club members and spending that time creatively building together. We are posting build challenges every Wednesday.

Did you get time to build something really awesome? Share a picture with us by tagging us on social media, or email it to children@shelburnelibrary.ca. 

Sleepy Story Time: Each Thursday evening the Shelburne Public Library has a fun addition to your bedtime routine – our livestream Sleepy Story Time! Join us at 7:00 pm and listen to four new stories every week.

Story Time: Each Friday at 10:00am a brand new Story Time video is released. These videos are great to watch on their own, but are even more fun when you’ve picked up your bag full of Take-Home Story Time crafts! Each week we sings songs, listen to a story, and then follow the instructions for the crafts in our craft bags. Keep an eye out, pre-registration for November will be available soon.
