Music Together

 First class is September 1, 2015!

Music Together an internationally recognized early childhood music program for infants, toddlers, pre-schoolers, kindergartners, and the adults who love them. This research-based, developmentally appropriate early childhood music curriculum strongly encourages adult involvement and emphasizes actual music experiences rather than concepts about music.

For ages newborn through 5 years old.

Mindfulness for Kids

Have you ever rushed through the day going from activity to activity on auto-pilot?  Eating without tasting and looking without seeing?  Children are leading an increasingly busy life with school, sports events, music lessons and more. So they also experience that rushed pace.

Mindfulness techniques train you to pay attention to those things in the present moment in a nonjudgmental and accepting manner. This gives children the opportunity to stop and choose a response thoughtfully rather than reacting impulsively.

Parents/caregivers will be participating in this program as well through mindfulness exercises with your child and through a book discussion.  The book Mindful Parenting: Simple and Powerful Solutions for Raising Creative, Engaged, Happy Kids in Today’s Hectic World by Dr. Kristen Race will be used to discuss techniques for mindful parenting.

This program will meet on the third floor of the library on  September 3, 10, 17, 24, October 1, 8, 15 and 22 at 4:00 pm. Grades K-2

Builders Brigade

Kids have the opportunity to use their best creativity to design buildings, creatures, and more using Lego and Mega blocks. They can work alone, or in a team with peers. A different theme is picked for each session and kids can build on that theme or build a creation of their own. At the end of each session, a photo of each child’s creation will be put on display at the library for all to see until the next club date!

This program will occur twice each month for all ages. Children ages 7 and under must be accompanied by a parent. No registration required.
