Join us on Tuesdays for our active STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) program. This program encourages families to get hands-on and interactive at the library. Throughout the library there will be age appropriate activities for families to complete together. .
Family Place Parent-Child Workshop
Family Place emphasizes the importance of play in early learning and the importance of parents and caregivers to promote and participate in children’s play. All families need information, support and connections to local resources. Our new fun and play-based Parent-Child Workshop is a relaxed informal program where families can play and learn together, make friends and talk one on one with child development and early literacy specialists. Workshops are five-week sessions held twice a year. The spring session starts in April and the fall session will be in September.

PAWS for Reading
Do you have a reluctant reader? Then this program is perfect for your child! Research proves that reading to a therapy dog boosts reading skills, builds confidence and helps develop emotional and social skills. On Tuesdays, the library will host PAWS for Reading with Pepper. Pepper is a trained, leashed therapy dog who will visit the library with her handler to spend time with your little one in a 20-minute, one-on-one session. Registration is required and children must be in grades 1-6. Contact Sandie Isaacs at 817-297-6707 ext. 2080 to register.
