Our libraries offer about a hundred programs a month, but it is sometimes hard for folks to work our schedule of events in to their own. To make things easier, some of our programs utilize a longer, open-ended, come-and-go format. You don’t need to be there at the start, and you can leave whenever it suits.
Drop in at any of these programs:
Arcade Night (fourth Tuesday of the month, 4-7pm at Laura’s Library) is all-ages video gaming, including both current and retro consoles: Nintendo, SNES, Wii, XBox 360, Playstation 4, and Nintendo Switch. Test your skills at Mario Kart, Super Smash Brothers, Minecraft, Fortnite, Rocket League, Street Fighter 5, Just Dance, and more!
Free Play (Mondays, 4-7pm at Laura’s Library) is the world’s best play date. Loads of toys, games, and art materials for all ages play and exploration. Teens can drop in to help out and earn volunteer credit while having fun.
Friday Knitting (Noon-3pm, every Friday at Westbank) is for knitters of all levels to enjoy each other’s company while working on their latest knitting project. New to knitting? We are having a beginner’s knitting lesson during Discovery, Wednesday, January 16, 4:30-5:30pm.
Saturday Discovery (1-3pm, Westbank) has a new open-ended format. Every Saturday has a different focus, including LEGO play, science and art exploration, and music and movement.
Stay and Play is an unofficial program. Both of our libraries have back yards, and many families stay and play or picnic after picking out a book or attending storytime. Choose your favorite storytime, and stay afterward to get to know the other parents, caregivers, and kids.
Tech Help Offered Tuesdays (5-7pm, both libraries) and Sundays (Noon-2pm, Westbank), tech-savvy teens can help you with your devices and technology questions. Have a quick question? Ask at the desk any time!
