October has passed, and we are moving closer to those long gray winter days. Children have gotten used to being outside playing and being active. Parents and caregivers have enjoyed those activities that tire out their little ones and allow for longer naps and earlier bedtimes! As winter marches towards us, caregivers will soon be thinking of ways to fill the days with fun and engaging activities. There are programs at the library that your child will surely enjoy!

The Children’s Department has many outstanding programs for your child to participate in, regardless of age. Baby and Me is designed for our youngest patrons, age’s birth to 18 months. Tiny Tikes is for children ages 18 months to 3 years, and Little Learners is for ages 3 years through pre-k. We also have a Maker Space program for children in 1st through 5th grade and a Spark Zone kit designed especially for children in grades 1st through 5th grade who cannot participate in our in-person Maker Space program.

Our Children’s Department is filled with books that are sure to interest your child. Stop in and pick out a wide variety of books. How about choosing one subject, such as tractors, princesses, dinosaurs, or animals, and have a week of fun that revolves around the subject you picked! Want to plan some fun for those prolonged winter days? We have a wide variety of books for that! Books such as The Preschooler’s Busy Book by Trish KuffnerFood Play by Amy PalanjianChild’s Play: Easy Art for Preschoolers by Leslie Hamilton, and  Fun Things to Do with Paper Cups and Plates.

Visit the Children’s Department and brighten your winter days!  We provide various items that promote the five early literacy practices: talking, playing, singing, writing, and reading. There is so much to do in this area. Your child is sure to have a wonderful time! We look forward to seeing you!
