Monster Mash Masquerade

Families with young children can get dressed in their most comfortable costumes and get your dance on. This program is an open dance party for our littlest patrons to get movin' and groovin' with their grownups to some great spooky tunes. After we've danced the monsters away, be ready for a costume parade through the library!

Designed for new walkers up to 5 years old, dancing is a great way to have some fun.

Happy Grandparents Day

Hey Kids,
It was a back-to-school week for a lot of you, but before you get too caught up in the school routine, I thought I’d remind you about a holiday coming up tomorrow. National Grandparents Day is the first Sunday after Labor Day, and a perfect time to show a little extra love to the people in your life who act as grandparents to you. My family is made up of bears and I’ve lost touch with many of my ancestors (it's a distant cousin in the photo), but don’t let that happen to you! 

Come to the library on Sunday, September 7 to make something for the grandparents in your life, or to take a picture with a grandparent. If you’re looking for a special story to share, you can also look up “Grandparents” as a subject or keyword in our catalog.

Talk It Up: Read & Write

This program is for kids ages 7-10 who like to hear stories and talk about them, too. Participants will listen to a story read by a Children's Librarian, discuss it with each other afterwards, and then write a short book review. Books chosen for discussion will vary in genre and include fiction, non-fiction and biographies. No need to read the book ahead of time - just bring your listening ears and then get ready to talk it up!

This discussion will help participants build literacy skills, as well as their vocabulary and writing skills.

Program Date: September 20, 2:00 PM
