What's Up at the Library?
Bring your preschooler to our next Tales for Tots storytime at Mariano’s Fresh Market. This storytime is for children ages six and under.
Celebrate popular foods of the 1960s, including some pretty quirky ones. We’ll cover the popular culture, political and scientific highlights of this great decade and take time for some tastes and samples.
Grandma and Grandpa will have as much fun as the grandkids as we share stories, activities and snacks in honor of Grandparents’ Day. For ages 3–6.
Join us for an afternoon of fun and adventure as we travel to Japan and learn about the people who live there. Taste the food, learn some of the language and make a craft. For ages 6–9.
Join us to discuss the book, It's Your Business: 183 Essential Tips That Will Transform Your Small Business, by J.J. Ramberg. Refreshments provided.
Are you interested in using the Studio, our digital media lab, but not sure where to start? Stop in to ask any questions you have about the space or learn the first steps to anything from scanning photos and digitizing home movies to editing a video and recording music. Learn to use our HD camera with a green screen, backdrops and lighting, our DSLR Camera with flashes or our recording booth, multitrack recording, keyboard and electronic drum kit.
Shared reading is the best way to help babies, toddlers, and preschoolers develop the important early literacy skills they need to learn how to read independently later on. The more books children ages 0–5 hear, the more prepared they will be to learn how to read. It’s never too early to start.
• Register here or in Kids’ World beginning September 8.
• Start reading and counting!
• Drop by Kids’ World to check in and receive prizes.
• The library will host a 1000 Books Celebration in May 2015, but the program doesn’t end until your child enters kindergarten.
Helping your child develop early literacy begins with cuddling up and sharing a good book. Research shows that children become readers on the lap of a caring adult. Join us as we reach for 1000!
