Events for Children:
Toddler Story Times
Every Wednesday at 10:30 AM!
Make new friends and enjoy interactive and energetic stories, songs and music with a unique theme each week. This Story Time is designed for ages 18 months to 4 years, and their caregivers. Babies are most welcome. Stay and play afterward!
We are growing! Please try to arrive just before 10:30 AM so that we all can start on time. Thank you very much!
If you are only coming to the "stay and play" segment, please arrive at 11:00 AM. Thanks!
Read to Dogs Schedule:
Jake and Mr. T will be with us on December 12, 2019 from 3:00-4:00 PM
Reading to Dogs is a reading program designed to improve children's reading skills. Read aloud to a registered/certified therapy dog from Therapy Dogs International, Chapter 205. You must register to participate!
Kids in Grade 1-4 who register will have a 15 minute session with a dog of their choice. Bring your own book, or pick out one of ours to read.
Why read to a dog? Because dogs are friendly and comfy, judgement-free (no pressure!), and they love the attention of being read to!
Kids can gain more confidence in their reading aloud skills, and enjoy the company of a new friend.
If you would like more information, or to register, please call me at the library. Thank you.
Knitting for Kids (of all ages)!
Every Friday after school (2:30 PM).
Please bring your own projects, or we can help you get one going!
Cookies and Cards
PLEASE drop in all of this week!!
Please help us send a little love and cheer to some very special senior veterans (most are from the WWII, Korean and Vietnam era). All materials available will be perfect to make a simple and very lovely card that shows support and appreciation.
Cards will be delivered to the NH Veteran's Home in Tilton, the VA Hospital in Manchester, and the Soldier's Home in Holyoke, MA.
