From the Children's Room

It’s hard to tell what happened in February from beneath the piles and piles of snow! Here in the Children’s Room at the Main Library, we’re digging our way out and hoping to find some spring weather as we tunnel into March. Whether or not Mother Nature heeds our cry, we have some exciting programs in
the works.

Start off the month right by saying “Happy Birthday!” to the man behind The Cat in the Hat and Green Eggs and Ham. Stop by for Dr. Seuss’s Birthday Bash on March 3. This month we’ll also kick off our new program series, Artist-at-Work, with a visit from painter and illustrator Nancy McBride. Her work will be on display all month, and she will demonstrate her craft on March 29th. Do you have artistic aspirations of your own? Learn to Draw Manga with graphic artist and teacher extraordinaire Jamie Buckmaster during our bi-weekly workshops on March 14 and March 28, or join us for an Equinox Craft on March 20.
Love stories? We have programs for all ages - our Spring Storytime Session starts the first week of March. Sign up for Toddler Time or Preschool Storytime, or drop by on Tuesdays for Baby Time or PJ Storytime on March 4 and March 18. Read to Nemo, our favorite Newfoundland, on March 11, or Act out African Folktales on March 15 with storyteller Laura Partridge. Older kids can join us for the final M.C.B.A Book Club of the season on March 12 to discuss Inside Out and Back Again by Thanhha Lai; if you can’t make it, be sure to vote for your favorite before the deadline on March 14! We’re also instituting bi-weekly Family Feature Films, so join us for movies on March 7 and March 21.
All programs are free and open to the public. For more details, including ages and times, keep an eye on our calendar and on Facebook. We hope to see you in March!
