Drop-in Baby Lapsit @ McAuliffe

Tuesdays 10:00-10:30am

Ages 0-2 with an adult.

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.

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. We begin with a discussion of a topic in poetry leading to a brief in-class assignment. Poets who wish to have their work discussed should bring copies.

Alan’s collection, Immortality, was awarded the Massachusetts Book Award for Poetry in 2016.

Storywalk (every day through November 15)

Take a self-guided walk around the library to read our fall title, Creepy Carrots by Aaron Reynolds! Start at the bottom of the Pearl St. ramp, continue around the building, up the Lexington St. steps, then halfway down the ramp to the stairs to the Reading Garden and the end of the story.

Write to an Author

In honor of National Author’s Day, stop by the library to write a friendly letter to any author you enjoy! Tell them what book they wrote is your favorite, ask them questions, or just draw them a picture. We’ll mail letters at the end of the month to the authors!
