Register the ‘littles’ for all the preschool opportunities in January if you have not already done so. We require registration so we can adequately be equipped by space size and supplies. If you sign up, we consider you registered for the rest of the academic school year with some exceptions for holidays and such. Please send us an email or call if you cannot attend to help with our preparation.
MOTHER GOOSE ON THE LOOSE: Mother Goose on the Loose is a fun-filled thirty minute interactive session that uses rhymes, songs, puppets, musical instruments, and more to stimulate the learning process of babies and toddlers. Infants through age 2+ with their caregivers are invited to join us on Mondays at 10:30am for repetition and rhymes. Please feel welcome to stay after the session to allow for playtime and socializing for all ages.
BITTY BOOKS: Children ages 2-3+ with their caregivers are invited to join us on Tuesdays at 10:15am for itty bitty stories, rhymes, finger plays or songs, and a simple craft. This is a simplified story time for the children who are already two years of age. It’s also a good fit for older children who have a hard time paying attention to more than one story per class.
KIDDIE LIT: Crafts, music, new friends and adventures into literacy are found during these classes. These classes meet on Tuesday at 11:30am, or Fridays at either 10:15 or 11:30am. Most often multiple books are read and an accompanying activities are provided to go along with the theme. Caretakers may stay and listen or relax in another part of the library.
ADULT CRAFT, PAINT & COLOR: Come to unwind, de-stress and create. Join us in January for our Friday drop-in session from 10:15-12:15 and dabble in painting, coloring or bring a creative craft you would like to share. This is an open time so feel free to stay the entire time, leave early or come late. Remember, this is a no stress event so if you only have 30 minutes to spare than spend it relaxing with a group.
Research shows that creative activities help you relax after a busy day. Be creative and have fun, no experience is necessary. We will have limited supplies available however please feel free to bring your own supplies as well. *Those who prefer to dabble in painting must bring your own supplies.
Registration is not required however it is suggested as it helps us to plan accordingly plus we can give you a friendly reminder that you have some time set aside JUST FOR YOU!
