The library is a great resource for families trying to provide educational opportunities for their children during the long winter break!
If you are able to get out to your neighborhood library, you can check out books, music, or movies. Many of our lirbaries also have manipulatives for the preschool crowd like wooden trains and tracks, play cubes, blocks, and play kitchens. They also might have learning toys for older children like LEGO sets and Keva planks, and children are always welcome to play games, do homework, or just generally explore the internet using the library's computers. Additionally, we recommend you explore our many online resources for children. We especially recommend Tumblebooks, which provides animated, talking picture books and chapter books.
Although the neighorbood libraries have lots of great learning experiences that children can explore all the time, one of the best ways to enjoy the library as a family is to attend one of our many diverse events. Here is a list of some program highlights around the city:
Tuesday, December 27th
Wednesday, December 28th
Thursday, December 29th
Additionally, over 10 libraries will be hosting storytimes throughout the week for babies, toddlers, and preschoolers. Please check out our events calendar for other great programs or visit your neighborhood library’s page to see what is going on nearest you.
