[ARCHIVED] Weekly Youth Program at the Library Return!

Weekly youth programs return for Fall and Winter sessions at the library!

We've had a great summer break, but we're ready to get into the Fall/Winter season for weekly youth programs.
Plus, we're revamping the lineup and adding some new additions to the schedule!

Look for their return on September 5, after Labor Day holiday.

Here's a glance at the schedule:

Monday
- Sensory Playtime:
Kids will develop positive behaviors and motor skills as they explore different interactive activities that stimulate the senses. Some days we might lay out sensory pools, some days we might do some child yoga. Join us Mondays at 10:30 AM and find out!

- After School Video Game Time: 
Ages 8 - 17, come decompress after school with some Super Smash Bros.! Held in a round-robin tournament style like we do during Spring Break and Summer Reading Club, stop by with friends or make some new ones while seeing who reigns supreme in the arena! 4:30 PM - 6:30 PM, free to attend and participate.


Tuesday
- Babygarten Story Time:
Classic story time for the littles! Enjoy singing, dancing, and reading activities that help kids and guardians bond and grow together. Afterwards, playtime is encouraged for kids while caregivers can socialize with others. Recommended for ages 0-3. Starts at 10:30 AM


Wednesday
- Early Learning Journeys Story Time:
Young children will enjoy singing along and interacting with Library staff while building their educational foundation! We always include singing, dancing, and interactive exercises, followed by a newly-published book being read aloud. Children will then enjoy activities and crafts geared towards helping them to imagine, create, and grow! 
Recommended for ages 3-5. Starts at 10:30 AM.


Saturday
- LEGO @ The Library:
Join us on Saturdays at 11:00 AM in the children's department. Youth services staff will announce a new LEGO build theme for the day. Then it's up to your kids to create something original based on the theme. Library staff will judge the submissions and choose a creative champion from three different age brackets to issue a small reward to (Ages 1 - 5, Ages 6 - 8, Ages 9 - 12). Creations will be displayed in the Children’s Department for the week. DUPLO and safety blocks are available for younger children. Free to attend and lots of fun for families.
