The Children’s Room has some exciting programs and fun activities planned for March! A few of these programs are brand-new to the library, designed to follow STEAM — science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics — programming/education. Our music programs and the Picture Books & More series emphasize art and creativity education while the Stories & Science program highlights everyday science and the power of experimentation. A common theme of our March programs are stories and setting aside time to read to young children to foster good reading habits and brain development. Take a look at our March programs below and feel free to contact us for more information about these entertaining and educational programs!
Sunday Special Randy Kaplan: March 2, 11:00-11:45 a.m.
Randy Kaplan will be the star of March’s Sunday Special! “Mr. Diddie Wah Diddie,” Kaplan’s newest album, is an award winning Country Blues and Ragtime CD for kids. This Sunday Special will take place in the library’s Main Reading Room, before it is open to the public. Randy will perform a wide variety of music and do some comedic storytelling for children and families. No advance sign-up is required and children and families of all ages can enjoy and groove to Kaplan’s fun music.
