Pictures and Planets

Children -  have you been to the beach this summer or do you plan to go soon?  If so, we may have just the craft for you on Tuesday, July 12 at 2:30 pm.  We'll be decorating a foam picture frame shaped like a sand castle.  It will be perfect for framing a picture of you and your family at the beach...or the pool...or the sprinkler...or the bathtub!  Tickets are required.  They are free and available starting thirty minutes before the program.

Join us for Toddlers @ Play on May 24 and May 31

There will be temporary change to the Toddler Time schedule for the last week of May and first week of June.  We will have Toddler Time these two weeks only on the Tuesday of the week.  The Book Babies schedule will remain the same.

We are making the temporary change to try a special program - Toddlers @ Play.  We have purchased new educational toys just for the skills and interests of toddlers.  We will have stations where the children can try out the new toys.  There will be a music station with instruments and shakers, a construction station with blocks, an art station with manipulatives and puzzles, and a cozy library station with new board books that they can enjoy.
