The 3rd Monday of each month during the school year April Fisher, the LEGO Lady, brings a variety of literacy-based LEGO activities to our library. Projects are appropriate for 3rd, 4th, and 5th Graders. Pre-registration is required to allow library staff to walk students to the library immediately following school dismissal at 2:30. A snack is served. Children are released to their parents at 3:30. (January and February – meeting on the 4th Monday of those two months.)
Each Wednesday morning from 10:30 to 11:30 preschoolers are invited to enjoy stories, songs, crafts, and other pre-literacy building activities at the library. Very young children and their even younger siblings learn about the magical place that is “the library.” Regular attendance at Story Hours shapes the way your child will always see and use the library. Stories are a wonderful way to explore and encourage social/emotional awareness. Story Hours are a great place to meet and make friends!
4th and 5th Graders meet every “late-start” Wednesday throughout the school year from 2:30 to 3:30 at our library — to discuss the best juvenile literature, play games to locate library resources, create their own literary masterpieces, and have fun doing it! This is a safe environment to practice and hone reading skills learned at school. An after-school snack is served. Pre-registration is required. Multiple copies of the month’s book are available at the library.
A music therapist from Developing Melodies will lead singing, dancing, and stories at our library from 2:30 to 3:30 on the fourth Tuesday of each month during the school year. Tuesday Tunes is geared toward the developmental needs of Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd Graders. Parents need to pre-register their child by picking up a registration form at the library. This gives library staff permission to walk your child to the library immediately following school. A snack is served. ** Please note the date is changed to the 3rd Tuesday in March.
Tuesday, December 12th @ 5 pm the group discusses “Rain Reign” by Ann Martin and “Drowned City: Hurricane Katrina & New Orleans” by Don Brown.
