PROGRAMS

Tuesdays, 1-2 p.m.

We welcome families to join us for this aquatic-themed storytime program with book readings, activities and a craft! Children’s Librarian, Karen Hall, will engage children with readings, song-and-dance, and a hands-on activity. This storytime program is great for encouraging socialization and fostering early literacy skills.

• Games on Deck! (Tweens/Teens)
Thursdays, 1-3 p.m.

Students are welcome to join Library Director, Justin Brown, in this adventure game program!

Games on Deck! is a reading program developed for tweens and teens, that involves interactive storytelling with role-playing elements.  Utilizing “gamebooks,” this program encourages students to actively engage in literacy, risk assessment, cooperation and socialization.

Gamebooks are a type of choose-your-own-adventure story, which involves role-playing-game features, such as: readers assuming the roles of protagonists; resource management; die roles determining the success or failure of an action; character-attribute stats; and a set of basic rules/instructions to follow during play.
