Children's programs, old and new!

New Programs for kids!

The new Lego Club, meets the second Wednesday of every month at 3:00 pm, will be meeting again on December 8th. For ages 5 and up. Lots of fun and creativity going on!

Reading Fur Fun - Dog Tales - Kids get to read to a registered therapy dog named Shirley. The relaxed atmosphere helps kids improve their reading skills. Meets the third Tuesday of every month, at 4:00pm. Shirley will be back on Tuesday, December 21st. I love this program, Shirley is perfectly behaved and very sweet!

Homework Help for grades K thru 5. Our teen volunteers are here every other Wednesday at 3:00 pm to help the grade school kids with their homework. This is not tutoring, just a help with their homework or reading. Our next Homework Help is Wednesday, December 1st. And that will be the only Homework Help in December, we start up again after the first of the year, Wednesday, January 5th at 3pm.

We of course still have our storytimes for Toddlers on Tuesdays at 10:00am and  for Pre-schoolers on Thursdays also at 10:00am.

And that is it for a quick rundown of the Children's Department new programs!

Happy Holidays to you all!
