LEGO® Junior Maker Club
Children ages 4-9 with their parents/caregivers, please join us for inaugural LEGO® Junior Maker Club! Make, tinker, build, and explore with our brand new LEGO donation made possible on behalf of LEGO® Systems, Inc. and the Association for Library Services to Children. The Junior Maker club encourages children to take a hands-on, minds-on approach to “making” with the use of LEGO® bricks while tying in a love for reading. No registration is required. This is a child/parent event so everyone should bring their imaginations and be ready to build! Check our calendar for summer dates/times.
20-30 minute story time for our littlest readers
(Recommended for ages birth – 24 months with a caregiver)
Sing, clap, and listen to stories, nursery rhymes, and songs! Enjoy books, words, music, and more in a relaxed, welcoming environment with your baby. No registration is required and siblings are welcome.
30-40 minute story time for our toddler & preschool crowd
(Recommended for ages 2-6 with a caregiver)
Explore action rhymes, songs, and stories as we read books related to a weekly theme. After books, gather with us at the back table for a special activity. No registration is required and siblings are welcome.
Reading to the dogs (and cats!) was a huge success this past October and will be returning in February. Caring Hearts Pet Therapy program seeks to improve children’s reading and communication skills with the assistance of trained therapy animal teams. The children are encouraged to read, engage, and connect with the pet.
Bring your favorite book or two or choose one here at the library to share with one of our animal friends. Children will have the opportunity to read individually or in small groups with each of the animals at the session depending on the number of children registered and pets available. Animals are attentive listeners and their presence increases a child’s comfort in reading aloud.
Recommended for ages K-5th grade. No registration is required.
All team members have completed volunteer training, practice sessions, and have current clearances.
