Join Miss Jennie for an interactive lapsit for babies and young toddlers, birth through age 2. Enjoy stories, songs, rhymes and movement. Older siblings may also come. From 10:25 to 11 am we invite you to stay and socialize with other parents, caregivers and children.
Are you an intermediate reader who is ready to explore chapter books? Do you like to have fun? Are you “hooked on books?” Then our monthly after-school book club is for you! Each month we will explore a different genre or format. This month, read Johanna Hurwitz's Fourth Grade Fuss, then join Ms. Kerry for a book talk, a snack and fun activity. (Recommended for intermediate readers. Because reading ability can vary widely, this program is not age- or grade-specific.)
Copies of this month's selection are available at the Children's circulation desk.
This month's genre/format: Realistic Fiction
Fourth grade can be lots of fun, but Julio and his friends know it’s time to get serious when they begin preparing for the big statewide test. They plan to try every trick in the book to make sure they pass: wear their underwear inside out, use brand-new pencils, and even (gulp!) study. But when test day comes, they discover that there are some surprises that you just can’t prepare for!
Financial literacy: A useful skill that you may not even know you need. Financial literacy is the ability to understand basic financial tools and processes.
Come and work with financial advisor Jonathan Pearl who will encourage you to develop a budget, identify financial goals, understand the balance between spending, saving and borrowing and have a strategy.
Registration is preferred, space is limited
Let's talk about Madeleine L'Engle's classic science fiction novel A Wrinkle in Time and watch the 2018 movie inspired by the book! We'll have pizza and snacks while we watch. Get your copy of the novel at the circulation desk all month. Please pre-register to help us plan for food.
This program is for teens in grades 6-12. A Wrinkle in Time is rated PG, but it may not be appropriate for every teen. Parents are encouraged to read this review in advance.
