Kids MAKE things!
Second Thursdays, January 10, February 14, March 14, April 11 & May 9,  2:30-3:30 pm (lower level)

Creativity is a foundation of all other milestones in educational development. Harnessing creativity at a young age, when brain development and plasticity are at their peak, not only optimizes academic success, but is critical for social and emotional development, critical thinking and problem solving.

Family Movie Nights

Fourth Mondays, January 28th
6:00-8:00 pm

Family Movie night is back and we’re pulling out all the stops by bringing in some brand new releases. Give us a call if you want to know the titles, but here are a few clues.

Running out of room on your couch? Let us provide the big screen, cozy blankets to sit on, and snacks. We’ll even clean up the popcorn mess. We’re prohibited by our movie licensing agreement from using movie titles in our publicity.  Come to see the animated movie where a Yeti tries to prove that those creatures with Small Feet (foot would be singular) are real!

Special Programs for Babies!

Music and Sign for babies

Music Together at the Library!
Jan. 7, Feb. 4 & March 4
Are you shy about singing to your baby? Don’t be, singing is one of the five early literacy practices that helps your child succeed as a reader. Join other babies and their caregivers to share songs and play instruments. Learn about musical development in the very young, and how you can encourage it. This ongoing program is presented by Music Together instructors, Craig and Leslie.

Baby Sign Language at the Library!

Trying to communicate with your infant presents all kinds of challenges. Beyond reading, singing and talking to them, Baby Sign Language can provide a unique bond. Christina Schabow of the Portland Early Learning Project will lead this program introducing new themes for each program.
