Community Events – Library Programs for Parents and Children

One of the things I love about our local library system is that they offer a wide range of activities for parents and children.  These programs are often no/low-cost, highly engaging and exciting, and educational – which is why I love recommending them to families who are looking for a way to spend some quality time together.

In browsing their latest selection of activities, I came across a few gems that sound particularly fun for families.  Check out my list below, and then follow the link to their online calendar to see all of their program offerings!

Standout Programs for Families and Children:

Read to the Dogs

Young readers develop reading skills and confidence by reading aloud to trained therapy dogs during private 20-minute sessions on Mondays and Thursdays.  The first session begins at 4:30 pm.  Participants will receive a certificate of completion.  Registration is required by phone or at the Library.  For children ages 6-12.

Toddler Time

Stories, songs, finger plays and plenty of group participation in 20 minute sessions followed by playtime and an opportunity for adults to socialize.

Spanish Book Club (Circulo de lectura)

El círculo de lectura se reúne dos veces al mes para una conversación alrededor de lecturas comunes.  El enfoque del grupo son los cuentos de Latinoamerica.  El grupo es para personas de por lo menos 15 años de edad y en español.

Winter Nature Walk Program

Bundle up for a walk to see how plants and animals are coping with shorter days and colder weather.  For children in grades 1-3.  Registration is required online or at the library.
