After-school Programs Begin!

Please join us for our children's programs on Tuesdays from 2:30- 4:30.

Throughout the year we will be reading aloud from chapter books, and doing writing projects, drama activities, and seasonal crafts. If there's enough interest, we'll also plan a talent show for the spring.

Parents who want their children to come to the library can send a note to the school giving permission for their children to get off the bus at the library on Tuesdays.

A half-hour story time on Thursdays from 4:00-4:30 will suit children from age 3-5 with their parents or caretakers.

The all-ages kick-off party will be on September 25 at 3:00. We'll have brownies, introduce ourselves, sign up for library cards, and make duct tape wallets to hold the library cards. We'll also choose the first book of the year, which I'll read aloud during part of our time each week.

Parents are welcome and encouraged to come in and visit the library when they pick up their children, as well as any other time. Research shows that kids read more when they see their parents read. That's what we're all about!

Please email Jennifer Stefani (jennifer.stefani (at) gmail.com) with any questions or call the library at 352-4198.
