Toddler Time - Our Numbers are Growing

We are excited about the success of Toddler Time! Because of the increased demand, we will now offer an additional Toddler Time on Tuesdays at 11:15 AM. We will have two Toddler Time programs on Tuesdays at 10 AM and 11:15 AM and one program on Thursday at 10 AM.

The Toddler Time program is specifically designed to gently transition the toddler to a more structured form of programming. Kingwood Branch tailors this program as an exchange between the toddler and librarian, with personal touches to identify each toddler as their own special person.

With this in mind, we will limit the number of participants to 15 per class and we will start a registration procedure.

The Dragoneers Club Returns!

The Kingwood Library welcomes the return of the Dragoneers Club for school-age children. It will meet on the second and fourth Thursday of each month at 4 pm. The first meeting will be Thursday, September 9th in the Children's Activity Room. At sign-up, they will get a free book and a Dragoneers t-shirt. After learning about Dragoneers and how to earn ranks such as varlet, page, squire, and knight, we will share our favorite books. The books can be fiction, non-fiction or picture books. On the fourth Thursday of each month, the Dragoneers will have an activity, craft or program. Come join the fun.
