Back in the Swing of Things

Friday, September 22, 2017

School's back in session, fall has begun, and the Children’s Library is in full swing! Visit the third floor to browse and borrow from our wonderful collection, with books for every young reader and researcher (and grownups, too). We have a full schedule of activities for children of all ages. After a brief summer break, we've resumed our storytime schedule and have great author events and storytelling on the horizon.

Don’t miss our weekend Creation Station, an all ages, open-ended, creative workspace available from 12-3 every Saturday and Sunday. Drop in and you and your child can use the provided supplies to make any craft you wish! A mustache-themed comic strip? A decorated paper-plate fan? A picture book of your own? You decide!

Wiggles and Giggles is our interactive storytime for newborn babies to 24 month olds and their grownups.  

Delight in Mother Goose Magic where nursery rhymes, songs, and stories are shared with children ages 2 and older.

Preschool? Kindergarten? Young elementary? Ages 3 and older are welcome to our Themed Thursday storytime and enjoy a new theme and craft at each session. 

Children attending elementary school in grades kindergarten to 3rd grade can join the STEAMship Society, a new monthly program exploring Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math.

9-12 year old members make the Tween Scene come alive! This is a time for tweens to get creative at the Library.

Join us for several special events for young members and their families this fall!

  • Meet notable authors and a celebrated illustrator
  • Hone your creative writing skills
  • Become a part of the tales told during an enchanting afternoon of storytelling

For more details about when all these exciting events take place visit our events page. Email children@nysoclib.org to register for programs or to receive our weekly newsletter including event listings and reading recommendations.

We look forward to seeing you on the third floor soon. Until then, happy reading!
