Tabletop Games – Wednesday, March 1, 6 – 7:45 p.m.
Join us for a fun-filled evening at the Blue Valley Library with family members and friends, old and new, and become a part of the Johnson County tabletop gaming community. Kids, teens and adults can enjoy a variety of games together, including collaborating to escape the Forbidden Island, getting creative with a round of Dixit, or strategizing their way to victory as King of Tokyo! Discover and learn new games from our collection or bring your personal favorite to share. Each month, our gaming librarians will feature a family-friendly game, the March pick is Carcassonne, and teach you how to play it. Come and go as you please. Refreshments are provided.
Caregiver Workshop: Intro to Baby Sign Language – Wednesday, March 1, 7 – 8 p.m.
Whether it's finding activities to keep them busy or understanding what's going on inside their heads, being a caregiver of young children can be challenging. Each month's caregiver workshop explores a different topic to support and enrich relationships between kids age birth to 6 and their caregivers. In March, discover American Sign Language to use with your baby. This program will be hosted using the meeting software Zoom. A Johnson County Library staff member will contact registrants via email the day before the meeting with instructions on how to access the Zoom meeting. You do not need to download any software or create an account.
READ to a Dog with Pets for Life – Monday, March 6, 3:30 – 5 p.m.
You’re invited to come Read with a dog at the Leawood Pioneer Library. The Reading Education Assistance Dogs (R.E.A.D.) program improves children’s reading and communication skills by employing a powerful method: reading to a registered therapy dog or cat! These animals volunteer with their owner/handlers as a team. Please note: space is limited for this program; kids will get a ticket at arrival and wait their turn to read to one of several dogs.
