Winter in the Children’s Room

Kira in Cozy Corner (800x412)Winter is here and while it is cold outside, it’s warm in the Library!  The library is a great place to come to cure cabin fever.  We have board games for families to use, “big books” that are fun to spread out read with friends, AWE stations where kids can access free computer games and of course, lots of BOOKS!

As the snow blows in, so does a whole new schedule of programs in the Augat Children’s Room. Libraries have an important role to play in the intellectual development of young children.  Story times and other library programs open up the world of books, music, culture, science and play to babies, toddlers, families and young children and all of it is FREE.

We offer weekly programs for babies, toddlers & preschoolers.  During evenings and school vacations, we offer activities for children of elementary, middle and high school age.

Try This! tableDuring February vacation week we will be hosting two different “passive programs”.  What that means is that the materials will be set up in the children’s room during specific hours and you can bring your family in anytime during those hours and participate in the activity.  For kids in grades 1 and up, we will be setting up a STEAM Playground with lots of exciting tools for kids to try.  For families of all ages, we will set up an indoor storywalk.  Walk around the room while you read a winter themed story!
