Messy Art Day 2
Saturday, April 21st 10:30 AM
Kids 6 and younger and their grown-ups are invited to come to the library and create big, MESSY art! We recommend that you wear clothes you can get messy and that you are prepared to make art with your bare hands and feet. Grown-ups may also find it helpful to bring a change of clothes for the kids or to have their car ready to take home messy kids.
Mother Goose Time (0-24 months)
A playful, bouncy, cuddly time with stories, songs, and rhymes for you to share with your baby.
Note: There will be no Mother Goose Time on Wednesday, May 2!
Toddler Time (2 & 3 years)
Stories, action rhymes, and a craft for active toddlers.
Preschool Storytime (3 years and up)
Picture books, rhymes, songs, and a craft for growing minds.
Monday-Tuesday, 10 a.m. to noon
Children 6 and younger with an adult are invited to drop in for these unstructured play dates in a learning-rich pre-literacy environment. Board books, foam blocks, sensory play and more! No registration required.
The 1000 Books Before Kindergarten challenge encourages you to read 1,000 books to your infant, toddler, or preschooler before their first day of kindergarten. 1000 books? That's too much! We hear you! You can do it! Start with one book - any book! Favorite books can be repeated. Books read to your child by other family members and friends, at daycare or playtime, and at library storytime all count.
To help keep up the momentum and stay motivated along the way, Longview Library will provide tips, targeted book recommendations, fun incentives, plus a free book and book bag, stickers, recognition on the Reading Tree, and after you reach 1000 books, a backpack with supplies for your little one's first day of school. Use the Beanstack link to sign up anytime and start logging books on September 20.
