Drop-in Baby Lapsit Storytime at McAuliffe

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.

Ages 0-2 with an adult.

Poetry Workshop

Led by Alan Feldman, 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 should provide copies to distribute. Alan’s new collection, Immortality, was awarded the Massachusetts Book Award for Poetry in 2016.
