Baby Lapsit

Come sing and play with words, rhyme and puppets at Baby Lapsit. 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.

Vacation Week Craft: Peeps Dioramas (McAuliffe Branch Library)

We’re gonna have a contest this spring to see who can make the coolest Peeps diorama. Yup, the little marshmallow birds and bunnies. You can make yours at home if you’d like and bring it in to us by the end of April (deadline is Tuesday, April 30th), but we’re gonna give you all some time to work on it here at the library too. We’ll have all the basics you’ll need (including lots of Peeps), but bring anything else you’d like to use. Winner gets a cool prize.

Grades 6-12
