<< LIBRARY PROGRAMS >>

LEGO Club:  Mondays from 3:30 to 4:30 PM  Drop in to play and create with LEGO.  We supply the blocks; you bring the imagination.

Pre-Literacy Activities:   Wednesday mornings from 10 to 11:00 AM  Join Miss Lee for stories, songs, and movement activities designed for infants to children up to five years old.  In addition to developing pre-reading skills, singing, moving to music, and playing instruments all help foster a sense of rhythm and timing that are essential elements in developing the part of a child’s brain that shapes math skills.

Read to Lefty (Registered Therapy Dog):  Fridays from 5:30 to 6:30 PM (once a month)  If your child is self-conscious or reluctant to read, he or she may feel more comfortable reading to a dog.  Because dogs aren’t judgmental, the child relaxes and focuses on the reading.

Family Programming:  Thursdays from 5 to 8:00 PM, Drop in and try one of our board games or puzzles — or bring your own!  This unstructured program is open to ALL ages.  (Miss Lee is also available for homework help.)

Technology Walk-In Wednesdays:   Do you have a new Kindle or Nook, but don’t know how to download books?  Need to brush up on your computer skills – or obtain basic skills?  See Amy on Wednesdays between 10 AM and 1 PM for FREE, personalized, one-on-one instruction.

Library Book Discussion Group:  Meets the 3rd Thursday of each month at 7 PM.  New members are welcome.  Contact the library for the month’s selection.
