Storytime Schedule for July 17, 18 and 19

Next week, we are presenting a Space Camp for school aged children. Like many of our program opportunities, this event is extremly popular and all openings are filled.

Storytime families will have the opportunity to attend Twilight Tales on Monday at 7:00 pmTwilight Tales is our family storytime program that inspires a love of reading through a variety of early literacy activities. Crafts or extended learning experiences are often provided at the end of the program for children, and younger participants will have an option to explore books or baby toys with parents. Storytime programs will not be held on July 17,18,19. We will resume our regular storytime schedule on Monday, July 22. 

Does Your Family Have a New New Member? We have a family storytime for you. 

I have developed a special storytime to support the needs of infants and new siblings. Rock-a-Bye Readers is a gentle early-learning experience focusing on the interaction between infants, siblings and parents.

Priority Registration for a one-month block is recommended.  Registered participants not present by 1:10 may lose their spots to walk-ins. For safety, capacity for this program is determined by the composition of the group. This program will not be held on Friday, July 19. 

 

Teens: Are You Ready for Houston, We Have a Problem

It’s July 21st, 1969 and you have joined a group of teens to watch the moon landing at your local library when aliens attack. You must use your wits to find the alien lasers and defend your friends from the alien invaders. Part escape room and part laser tag, you can get tickets to this after-hours experience by completing Level 1 of the Atascocita Library teen summer reading program. Permission slips are required and must be turned in by July 11th.

The Magic of Theatre for Young Audiences

Books Alive will present an adaptation of Helen Lester's picture book Me First. Their production is a fully staged musical brought to life by a professional touring company. Children of all ages will enjoy the show, which promotes literacy and introduces young audiences to the magic of theatre! Families do not need to register for this program.

Celebrate Pollinator Week

Children and their families are invited to a special program presented by John Mims from Wild Birds Unlimited.

National Pollinator Week is a time to celebrate pollinators and learn what you can do to protect them. During this program, learn about the valuable ecosystem services provided by bees, birds, butterflies, bats and beetles. Afterwards, families will have an opportunity to create a craft. This program will take the place of the Twilight Tales storytime; we will resume our regular schedule the following week.  

Free Family Fun @ the Library!

If you've previously attended one of our storytimes, you will notice that Ms Rucker's program is very reflective of our goals related to emotional, social, and cognitive growth.
