Crafts, STEM, and books!

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
