"Dance Me a Story"

Lead by Darlington Arts dance teacher Lisa Oster

Once a month Ms Lisa Oster comes to the library to get the kids dancing through a story to make them feel a part of it!

"Each class starts in a circle with a warm-up and gross-motor skills around the room. Lisa uses dance terms throughout the class (plié, releve, passé, chasse). She also incorporates a bit of yoga in the warm up. Then each class features a story with movement and accompanying music. Class ends with Freeze dance into a cool down."

Parents stay in the room, but must keep conversations to minimum. Parents may join in if it helps their child but in general the kids participate on their own. Registration is required.

For ages 2-5 (younger/older siblings can join!)

In 2014, Longwood Gardens instituted a Community Read program intended to encourage people to pick up a good book and start a conversation about a specific topic.

This year, the Darby Library will participate by reading the children's book, The Great Kapok Tree, by Lynne Cherry. This book gives our children an inspired look at what the kapok tree means to the creatures who live in it—and what rainforests mean to the world’s ecology. The children will also make a tree craft.

Have your kids participate in this great educational experience. To register call the library: 610 586 7310.
