Infants up to eighteen months will enjoy our “Lapsit” program. This program brings parents and infants together in the library and offers them an opportunity to enjoy a special sharing time together. Infants sit on their parent’s lap and interact with them while enjoying songs, finger plays, and books designed with babies in mind.
NO OLDER CHILDREN IN THIS PROGRAM PLEASE
This program is designed for children from 18 months through three years old, to be an interactive program for parent and child. It is important that the child stays on their parent or caregiver’s lap, or cuddle near them during the program. Books with brightly colored pictures, songs, finger plays, and music are used to make this time as rewarding and instructive as possible.
NO OLDER OR YOUNGER CHILDREN IN THIS PROGRAM PLEASE
Designed for children ages 4 and 5 years old. We incorporate the use of music and movement as well as offering the best in children’s books and storytelling. We have a craft or an art activity as part of this program. To help create an independent learning experience, children should attend this program alone, while the parent or caregiver waits in the Children’s Library. Parents are welcome to join during the craft or art activity.
Programs will feature stories centered around a specific theme that will cover a wide range of ages. Families with children of varied ages will find this program the ideal way to enjoy the library together.
Held on the second Saturday of the month from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Families with kids of all ages are encouraged to grab a tub of Legos and have fun being creative and building something special while making new friends.
