Toddler Story Time will be back at the library on Monday, Jan. 22, at 11 a.m. The Monday holiday closures have prevented the program presentation for three to four weeks. Toddler Story Time is for ages three and younger and promotes socialization, vocabulary development and motor skills. The program includes a craft in the story theme. The materials are provided and the children may take the craft home to encourage additional discussion which provides use of their developing vocabulary skills.
The library’s Play Day program will be held on Jan. 29 from 10 a.m. to noon. The monthly program allows children, preschool and younger to play and enjoy exercise, social experience, a craft and a treat.
The January program will have an extra feature. Children will have a choice between continued play, attending story time, or participating in a musical movement activity.
Cheryl Kessler of Movin n’ Music will be at Play Day with an activity from 11:15 to 11:45. She provides music, sing-alongs and dance programs for all ages through her many professional endeavors. Typhanie from Mentoring Tiny Humans will provide the craft and as a Momco hostess prizes for the adult attendees.
