Drop-in Baby Lapsit Storytime at McAuliffe

Ages 0-2 with an adult.
Come sing and play with words, rhyme and puppets at baby lapsit time. Parents can network while babies pick up phonological awareness, one of six foundations of future reading success. This informal program for babies and their parents/caregivers runs about 20 minutes and introduces the pleasures of the library to your baby or toddler.

Teen Tuesdays: DIY Tile Coasters

Everyone needs coasters to set their cups on, and now you can make your own! We’ll be using old books, comics, maps, and more to create unique ways to keep your coffee table safe. Feel free to bring your own paper materials/decorations/print-outs to add to your collage.

Poetry Workshop

Led by Bernard Horn, Professor Emeritus at Framingham State University

This drop-in class welcomes serious poets of all ages and levels of experience who would like to participate for one or more sessions. Each session begins with a discussion of a topic in poetry leading to a brief in-class assignment. Poets who wish to have their work discussed need to provide copies to distribute during the session. Bernard Horn, whose poetry collection, Our Daily Words, won the Old Seventy Creek Poetry Prize, is professor emeritus at Framingham State University.
