January 2023 is right around the corner, and Easton Public Library is ready for it with a selection of exciting programs for kids and teens.
Toddler Be-Bop, Babies Boogie, and Preschool Story Time are back after their holiday hiatus and are joined by two new programs. Toddler Time (ages 2 and up) begins on Tuesday, Jan. 10, and meets on the second Tuesday of every month at 2:15 p.m. Toddlers and their caregivers will read a story, sing a song, and play with toys and manipulatives that help develop skills and dexterity.
Preschool Play (ages 3-5) offers a fun activity that’s geared to preschool-aged children, and meets on the last Wednesday of the month at 2:15 p.m. Every month will be a different experience. Truck-A-Palooza (ages 2-5) rolls in on Thursday, Jan. 26, at 4:30 p.m. Children are encouraged to bring their own trucks and play! There will be roads to drive on, books about trucks, a truck craft, and a fun little truck video to watch.
A brand-new program, Story Time with the Director, begins on Friday, Jan. 27, at 10:30 a.m., and occurs on the last Friday of the month. Library Director Lynn Zaffino will read several stories to preschool-aged children.
Sport Stacking is an amazing sport of fitness, agility, concentration, quickness and fun! On Saturday, Jan. 28, at 11 a.m., Speed Stacks will be at the Library to give a demonstration on Sport Stacking and will also give a lesson. This program is for children in grade 3 and older.
Teens in grade 6 and up can join the Chess Club, which will meet Mondays from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., starting Jan. 9. This volunteer-led club is for teens and adults who have played chess before.
Midterm Study Nights are back for high school students. The Library will be open until 9 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 17, Wednesday, Jan. 18, and Thursday, Jan. 19, to provide a quiet place to study for exams. Food will also be available. Study Night dates may change if the exam schedule changes. Please check the Library website for updates.
The Library Squad will be meeting on Friday, Jan. 6 at 3:30 p.m. Teens in sixth to eighth grade will have the chance to voice their opinions about what books and other materials they would like to see in the Library, as well as what programs the Library should offer. In the January session, the teens will design and make their own buttons.
Our teen-led group, TLC: Teen Library Council (Grades 9-12), meets on Friday, Jan. 20, at 3:30 p.m. This is an opportunity to design your own program, make your voice heard, and make a difference in the community.
