Kid Zone


Tuesday 10:30 am Story Time and Craft Themes:
Story time is held in the Matson Meeting Room (located through the Library Cafe). We begin with good-morning songs, then read one or two stories, followed by movement rhymes, manipulatives (scarves, rhythm sticks, percussion instruments), and songs, and we close with another story or two. Craft time follows in the Youth Services area. We understand that little ones sometimes need to move or be noisy; parents are welcome to take their child out of the meeting room to calm down or play in the Youth Services area if need be.
