Every week, we have plenty of opportunities for our youngest patrons to come in and discover new things at the library. Take a look below for our lists of upcoming and regularly scheduled programs.
Youth Programming Schedule
FAMILY STORYTIME & PLAYTIME
Join us to share songs, rhymes, books, and a lot of movement! This program starts at 10:30 AM and are held on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Depending on the weather and the time of year, storytimes can be held inside on the main level or outside the library. Families are encouraged to bring a blanket to sit on, but it’s not strictly necessary for our indoor sessions.
This program is for toddlers, preschoolers, and their families. Registration is required but only one registration is necessary for a series of story times even if you don’t plan to attend them all. A series of playtimes generally run for six consecutive weeks and registration information is primarily used to call in case of a cancellation.
Come enjoy a half hour of fun with your baby! We’ll share songs, finger plays, stories, and rhymes. Meet other parents and their babies, and enjoy some special time together. This program is intended for babies ages 0-18 months and is held on Tuesdays in the program room on our main level.
Siblings are welcome and only one registration is required for a series of storytimes which usually run for six weeks at a time.
Join us at the library to explore our block and toys collection in the company of other families. Use your hands to stack pieces together, knock them down, and start all over again. Block Party is a Pennsylvania State Library initiative aimed to encourage the use of block play for developmental and learning growth in young children.
We will set up our program room with building toys and manipulatives encouraging children to self-guide their participation. This is a drop-in program for all ages so you’re welcome to join us for as little or as much as you can, but we ask that you register so we know you’re coming.
Block Party is held once a month.
ROBOTICS & CODING CLUB
Stop by the library and engage with a variety of toys and tools that allow you to develop your skills in robotics, programming, and coding. We’ll offer access to educational items that will encourage kids, and adults alike, to learn the basics of coding and programming.
This self-guided, drop-in program is for all ages, so patrons are welcome to stop by for as little or as much as they like, but we ask for registration so we know you’re coming.
Robotics & Coding Club is held once a month.
Come to the library to practice your chess skills and play against other kids in the community. We will set up the program room with chess sets and tables for families to meet up and play a few rounds of chess in an informal setting. Bring any interesting exercises, openings, or moves you’d like to share with others.
Chess Club is held once a month.
