Tiny Talons

Every second and fourth Wednesday, 10 am

The base Library supports early literacy through the purchase of developmentally appropriate materials with age-appropriate programs. Bring your babies and toddlers. FREE!

Storytime

Fridays, 10-11 a.m.

This early literacy story time is geared towards preschoolers with two stories and a fun craft. Siblings of any age are welcome.

Spring Fling PJ Party

Fri., April 20; 6:30-8 p.m.
for the whole family. It's the first day of spring and we are going to make the most of it! Wear your G-rated pj's and come prepared to have some silly fun to shake off the long winter. There will be crafts, activities, goofy songs, and bedtime stories. We will spring for the bedtime snacks too. Sign up by April 19.

Playin' in the Dough

Fri., April 27; 11 a.m.- 4 p.m.
We will be getting creative and playin' in Play Dough and at least one other homemade crafting dough. Drop in anytime in those hours to smoosh, roll, build and create. This is geared toward 1 to 8 year olds but all are welcome to come and play. You don't have to tell your child that this will build strength in hand muscles and improve their hand-eye coordination. This activity is also a great stress reliever for all ages.

No "knead" to sign up; just come on in to the Children's Room on those days.

Falcon's Hero Training Academy

Fri., April 27; 6:30-8:30 p.m.
Are you a Super Hero in disguise? Have you discovered your hidden skills? Come out to the Training Academy to complete your costume and master all the training stations. There will be such things as Vaporizing Villains, Laser Webs, a Villain Hunt and Shield Throwing, and so much more. This activity is geared towards those ages 5 and up but we will accept those younger and willing to take on the challenge. Sign up by Thu., April 26.
