From the Children's Room

June 1, 2014

As we head into June, we are ready to Fizz, Boom, Read! We have many exciting, science-filled programs on the docket for the summer, which we’ll be kicking off on Saturday, June 14th with a day filled with festivities. In the morning, help us plant our garden on Library Lane (the picture is from last year). In the afternoon, we’ll Go for the Stars during a hands-on, multimedia space program. All are welcome!

Be sure to sign up to participate in summer reading while you’re here, and keep an eye on our calendar for fun, free activities! We are also proud to announce our partnership with the Worcester Public Schools and their mobile summer meal program. After school lets out at the end of June, they will be bringing free lunches to the Main Library every day at 1 pm for ages 0-17. Meals will also be provided at our branches. The start date and complete schedule will be available mid-June. We look forward to serving the whole child this summer, body and soul!

May 1, 2014

May means art in the library, and we are looking forward to the big exhibit put on by Worcester Public Schools and featuring work by students from all over the city. To celebrate their achievements, we will also have art in the Children’s Room. On May 2nd, we will have our third Artist@Work, sculptor Michael Alfano, doing a hands-on demonstration. Everyone can craft on May 9th, when we will make something special for the mothers in our lives, and on May 23rd, when we will celebrate spring and (fingers crossed) warm weather. Literature can be art, and the week of May 12th is Children’s Book Week. Librarians will choose some of their favorite books for random readings; we hope you’ll be here to share them with us!

We are gearing up for summer, when we will FIZZ, BOOM, READ from June 9 through August 16, but be sure to stop by in May for our regularly scheduled programs. These include Baby Time, PJ storytime, Read to Nemo, Videogaming, Baby Massage and Yoga, Icky Sticky, Acting Out African Folktales, Family Films, and Lego Club. Although storytimes are out of session, we will have a drop-in storytime for ages 5 and under on Thursday mornings at 10 am. All programs are free and open to the public. For more details, including ages, times, and registration details, keep an eye on our calendar and on Facebook.
