Children's Program

Celebrate Local Artists With Family Art

During the month of April, the Maud Marks Library is celebrating local artists!  Throughout the month, some of those artists will be stopping by to do art talks and workshops.  First up, this Saturday, April 8 at 3 PM, Meghna Patil will be here to show elementary school aged children the fine art of painting.  Children and their parents are invited to come and create their own masterpieces as we learn more about Ms. Patil's art and her painting process.  This is a ticketed event.  Please show up at 2:30 for tickets.  Afterwards, be sure to check out the many paintings and sculptures throughout the library.  The Maud Marks Library would like to thank the Friends of the Maud Marks Library for sponsoring this month long event as we Celebrate Local Artists!

Valentine's Crafts for Children

  Children 3-12 years old are invited to make Valentine's Day crafts on Thursday, February 9 at 4:30 pm.  We'll be making a "heart man" and decorating Valentine's Day cards.  We'll also be decorating some tasty cookies for the occasion.

Tickets are required.  They'll be given out 30 minutes before the program.

Thank you to the Friends of Freeman Library for supporting this program and many others throughout the year.

Are you a Book-aneer?

Now that “the spring has sprung,” you may want to spend more time outdoors (well, maybe after the city’s trees’ pollen production has subsided).  If so, why not plan one of your walks or trips to the park around a visit to the library? Whether you want to introduce your “little ones” to the wonderful realm of books, or whether they already love reading (or being read to), an escapade to one of our library’s storytimes may be quite an adventure!  Last week, Mrs. Donna talked about seeds and gardening, and this week, she will try to introduce you to her favorite pirates, and she promises they won’t be (too) scary.  Plus, she always shares with you some of her other beloved books.


So don’t dilly-dally!  We have the perfect times for you—after-breakfast and right-before-lunch:
