Teens: Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with The Art of the The Day of the Dead

The Day of the Dead may be next month, but it's not too early to learn about the traditions and art of the upcoming holiday celebrated throughout Mexico. Create a Day of the Dead skull mask and color wooden calacas (skeletons). This program is for ages 12-18. 

Hispanic Heritage Celebration for Families

Join us as we celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month by enjoying stories, a puppet show, and crafts highlighting Mexican culture as well as the diversity of Hispanic and Latino cultures around the world. We will also enjoy a tasty treat and have a drawing for cool prizes! This program is in place of our Twilight Tales (Family Storytime) program, and will begin 30 minutes earlier than normal at 6:30 pm.

Please be aware that space and supplies are limited. 

 

 

Family Storytime with an Emphasis on Little Ones

Rock-a-Bye Readers  is a mixed-age program geared toward babies and early-toddlers.

When: Fridays at 1pm.

This storytime has been created as a gentle early-learning experience focusing on the interaction between parent and child. We will enjoy sing-alongs, book sharing, and play. 

We recommend that parents register each child who will attend the program; doing so will ensure your space in the program for a one-month block.  The recommended registration will reopen on the last Friday of each month.
