From Rhymes to Readers
Join us Thursdays at 11am for “Rhymes to Readers”! From 11:00-11:20am we’ll have rhymes, songs and flannelboard stories for toddlers ages 1 to 3. This will be followed by longer stories and activities for preschoolers from 11:20-11:40AM. Ages are only a guideline- if you have a preschooler who loves to sing or a toddler that loves storytime, join us for both sessions! Spring season of “Rhymes to Readers” runs Jan. 12 through May 4 before taking a break and returning in June. No charge.
Ever wished the library offered more of a certain type of book or movie? Have you ever longed for a specific event or program to be hosted here at the library? Tell us about it! Join Y.O.L.O. (Youth Offering Library Opinions) and help shape the future of the NPR Public Library. Y.O.L.O. members will contribute ideas for programs and events, help select new library materials, plan for future fundraising opportunities and make a difference in the community. You can also earn volunteer hours. Meetings are once a month. Open to those going into grades 6 through 12. Contact Jessica in Youth Services for more information or an application.
