The Lake Stevens Library offers a wide variety of programming to those living in a Lake Stevens property. Bring the little ones to the library for one of the Ready Readers programs. Toddlers ages 19 to 35 months and their caregivers are welcome to come hear stories and get moving on Tuesday, February 13th from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. Youngsters can stay for playtime or a craft following the program. Bring little ones aged 0-18 months in for Baby and Me Storytime also on Tuesday, February 13th from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Babies can get an early jump on discovering a love for reading by being exposed to amusing stories and fun songs. Preschoolers ages 3 to 5 can come for activities and interaction with other children during Preschool Storytime on Thursday, February 15th from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.
Storytimes are available every week and patrons are invited to keep an eye on the calendar for other great events as well. Preschoolers can stick around after storytime for the Little Science Lab or come just for this event. Children ages 3 to 5 and their caregivers are invited to register for this chance to learn more about the natural world. A break from school means extra programming and early elementary students ages 5 through 9 can register for No School? Let’s Slime. Children will get their hands dirty and engage their brains by making and playing with slime from 1:30 p.m. to 3:15 p.m. on Friday, February 16th.
The Lake Stevens Library has plenty of opportunities for adults to come take part in programming as well. Adults aged 20 and over can visit the library for the STARS Training Series: Beyond Happy, Mad, and Sad - Building emotional literacy in young children on Saturday, February 17th from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. This workshop currently has a waiting list and will help adults better assist their children in understanding emotions. It is a useful skill for a child to be able to not only identify their own emotions, but to recognize them in others as well. Come in for one of these programs and grab a few books or DVD’s to take back to your Lake Stevens property on the way out. Check out the calendar and find links to more information about the library.
