Baby Lapsit 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.

Main Library Book Group: City of Thieves by David Benioff

Join us in a discussion of this novel that Kirkus calls “glorious” and describes as “a wild action-packed quest, and much else besides: a coming-of-age story, an odd-couple tale and a juicy footnote to the historic World War II siege of Leningrad.” Led by Mary Evans.

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.
