Programs for Parents

Tuesday, Aug 15, 2017

Parents and caregivers, we know you're carrying quite the cargo when you're caring for kids! If you're at capacity and could use either a clone or a coffee, come to the Library and peruse our calendar of events for caregivers!

Storytime Kickoff
Confused about the right storytime for your child? Come learn about storytimes and meet our storytime leaders. Enjoy a special storytime, followed by fun activities. Kids have a chance to "play librarian" by shelving books, putting on a storytime, and checking in and out books.

Thursday, Sept. 7
10 - 11 a.m.
Lackman Library and Central Resource Library

Parents Resource Night
Searching for fun educational resources for you and your children? Look no further! At this event, librarians will help parents navigate free educational resources and find creative ways to engage your children. While parents soak up these resources, kids can relax with some yoga, puzzles and/or books.
