Programs for Youth & Teens
SCHOOL YEAR PROGRAMS – September – May
During the school year, the library offers programs for all ages. From storytimes, to Minecraft Club, to Teen Game Day, there will be something for everyone. Keep checking back for more info!
Elementary Programs— Every Tuesday at 4pm
Elementary-age kiddos can join us every Tuesday at 4pm for some after school fun. Each week is a different activity, like Lego Club, Minecraft Club, and Open Art Studio. Check our calendar for specific activities!
Our storytimes are broken up into different age groups so that we can tailor them to each group’s developmental needs. Regardless of the age group your child falls under, storytimes encourage early literacy, communication skills, language efficiency, early math proficiency, reasoning skills, and social skills. Children who regularly attend storytime are, on average, better prepared to enter school than kids who don’t. Plus, and we can’t stress this enough, it’s very fun!
Baby Lapsit is a storytime designed for babies from birth through 18 months. This short storytime lasts about 15 minutes and is specifically tailored to the developmental needs of babies. Your baby will be on your lap, and you will both have so much fun as we sing, move, and read together. Come Tuesdays at 11am!
This storytime is designed for children in the 18 month to 3 year old age group. There are lots of opportunities for movement and books that are appropriate for this age group’s attention span. Toddler time is on Thursdays at 10:30am.
This storytime is designed for kids who are 4 and 5 years old. The books are a little longer and the concepts are a little more complex, but they’re still so much fun. Preschool Storytime is on Fridays at 10:30am.
Teens in 6th – 12th grade can join us for fun activities every other Thursday at 4:30pm! Each week is a different activity, and we will do things like art projects, game day, Minecraft Club, and more. Check our calendar for specific activities!
SUMMER PROGRAMS – June and July!
This year the library is offering tons of great summer programs for littles, elementary-age kiddos, and teens. From family fort night, to an obstacle course, to a chance to touch a cougar skull, to learning about wilderness safety, we’re going to have so much fun Reading Beyond the Beaten Path! Check out our list of programs, or visit our calendar for more information!
