Parents are responsible for their children while they are at the library or attending library programs, including when the child is dropped off by bus, or when the parent chooses to leave the building or program site. Programs start at 3:45 and end promptly at 5pm when the library closes. All programs meet at the library.
October 13th - Let’s Strike a Pose! Yoga
Well, we may not strike a pose but with help from Kripalu Yoga Instructor Alison Hans of Sangha Healing Arts we may ease into one. Come unwind from a long day at school, be sure to eat a big lunch because we’ll snack at the end, and bring a mat if you’d like. Parents welcome to join!
October 20th - Our Enchanted Backyard!
Are there fairies and elves living in your garden or woods? Kelly O’Brien will lead us on a scavenge for twigs, leaves, and whatever natural material we’ll need to construct houses for our enchanted friends. Take them home and hide them in your own secret place.
0ctober 27th - It’s that Boootiful Time Again!

November 10th & 17th - Who said “No Drama”?
We’ve invited Justine Calnan, also known as JC, to bring her professional knowledge of Acting and Theatre to our After School Program. In her words, "children will learn basic fundamentals of theater through activities in creative dramatics. Performance-based material will emerge through the support of teamwork and group creativity. I will cover the physical aspects of theater as well as the structure of putting together a cohesive scene or group of scenes, by beginning with mime and continuing with a series of games that will lead to beginning playwriting. Students will not only learn certain aspects of theater but begin learning how to overcome nervousness and finding comfort in their individual creativity."
On November 10th JC will focus on working with the younger kids through 3rd grade, the older kids will participate in a theme related project.
On November 17th JC will focus on working with kids fourth grade and up, the younger kids will participate in a theme related project.
We’re excited to have JC and can’t wait for the Drama!
