Happy New Year ! Okay, okay, I'm a bit late :)
There are lots of fun happenings about to occur at the Richmond Memorial Library. First up: Spring Storytimes. Sign up begins on January 11 for Marlborough residents and on January 18th for all others. Here's the run-down:
2 year olds: Monday or Thursday at 10:00 a.m. with parent or caregiver
3 year olds: Thursday at 2:00 p.m.
3-5 year olds: Wednesday at 10:00 a.m.
4-6 year olds: Friday at 1:00 p.m.
Session I storytimes start the week of January 23rd and go for 5 weeks. Session II starts the week of March 5th, also for 5 weeks. All storytimes include a craft and run from 30 minutes for the 2 year olds to 45 minutes for the older kids. Your child must be the prescribed age at time of sign-up.
For the older kids, how about "The Next Chapter"? This is a monthly program for kids in grades 2 through 4 where we'll discuss chapter books, share stories and other fun stuff. Sort of like a book club, but better! You can come each month or just once in awhile. We'll meet kids at the Marlborough Elementary School, walk them to the library, have an afternoon snack and begin sharing our love of books. Our first meeting is January 27, Friday, from 3:15 (when school gets out) to 4:00 (or so). Sign-up is required.
Look forward to:
Family Game Night! Wednesday February 1 at 6:30. More info coming soon.
February 4th, Saturday, is Take Your Child to the Library Day! A guest reader will be here and we'll kick off a sticker scavenger hunt and maybe we'll have a few other surprises too.
March is Cookie Month at the Library. Hmmm, what could that mean?
