Benefits of Crafts in Story Times

 


Developmental Benefits of Art

In our Story Times, we often incorporate creative activities.  We practice this approach in order to provide building blocks of child development.  The arts promote skills that are important in academic, career and life success.  Arts and crafts also open a child’s eyes to a new world of possibilities and independent thinking.
Here are just a few reasons why we use crafts and arts as part of our regular programming


Motor Skills: Scribbling with a crayon, learning to hold scissors, manipulating paintbrushes are all helpful dexterity skills that later translate into learning to write.

Welcome Back!


 

The library is NOW OPEN!

Thank you for your patience during our renovation.  Please do come by and see the changes that were made to Baldwin Boettcher Branch library.  We missed our library patrons and want to let everyone know that our regular programs are back.  Stop by for Story Time, ESL, Tax help or just to say "Hello".

We missed you!
