Crafts, STEM, and books!

Due to public health concerns, the library is closed through March 31. Programs are currently on hold though May 1. Please keep an eye on the calendar for updates.

See the Kids' Calendar for specific dates & times and special events. The following events are offered September through May.

Paws and Read

Beginning and independent readers build their literacy skills while they share a book with a volunteer canine team from the Dog Alliance. The dogs are certified therapy animals who volunteer with their owners/handlers.

Once a month, the library also hosts Hooves and Read. Kids can practice their reading skills with miniature therapy horses from Northwind Farm.

Children work on a different art project every week. Craft projects improve coordination and fine motor skills while building self-esteem.

STEM Club (5-8 years)

STEM at the library offers opportunities for kids to creatively explore science, technology, engineering and math through a different activity each week.

Homeschool Kids (5-8 years)

Children participate in weekly informal enrichment activities that explore reading, science and math. Separate activities are provided simultaneously for kids, tweens, and teens.

Saturday Story Time (0-7 years)

Children build early literacy skills through books, music, and movement. Each Story Time session is followed by a craft. Although Story Time is usually planned for younger children, the Saturday sessions frequently feature slightly longer books enjoyed by kids in early elementary grades.SaveSave
