Upcoming Children’s Programs

Summer Reading 2016

Read books, earn prizes, learn, and have fun!

The program starts with a Kick-off Carnival on Sat. June 11 from 10 to 2. And we have 8 weeks of “Wow! Wednesdays” which are different performers, activities, and entertainment.

LEGO® Junior Maker Club

LEGO® Junior Maker Club! Make, tinker, build, and explore with LEGO®. The Junior Maker club encourages children and families 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! Meets every Thursday from 6:30-7:30 pm.

Made possible by a donation to the library by LEGO® Systems, Inc. and the Association for Library Services to Children.

Storytime

This summer we are combining the Infant storytime and the toddler and preschool storytime.

Explore action rhymes, songs, and stories. After books, gather with us at the back table for a special activity. No registration is required and siblings are welcome.

Infants will have an age appropriate activity instead of a craft.

(Recommended for birth-age 6 with a caregiver. 30-45 minute storytime)

Caring Hearts Pet Therapy – Tales with T.A.I.L.S.

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. Caring Hearts Meets Tuesdays at 6 pm.

All team members have completed volunteer training, practice sessions, and have current clearances.
