Saturday Family Storytimes
Saturday, March 25
Recommended age 2 – 5 years old with a caregiver.
Children’s events are in the Children’s Activity Room unless otherwise indicated. Programs are free and no registration is required.
Each program is designed to meet the early literacy needs of each unique age group and aims to strengthen the bond between children and their caregivers, all while cultivating a love for the library. We will read stories, sing songs, strengthen fine motor skills with instruments, scarves, and puppets, encourage curiosity, socialize, and have lots of fun together!

Second Thursday of Every Month
Studies show that children gain confidence when reading to dogs. Whether your child is a pre-reader, just learning to read, or is a proficient reader, they will enjoy this fun program. When readers get three punches on their punch card, they get a free book! This program is in partnership with Hutchinson Kennel Club Therapy Dogs.

Makerspace Workshop – Sew a Cord Keeper
March 25, 11:00 am & 3:00 pm
This month, visit the Makerspace and learn to make a cord keeper! A cord keeper is a small, sewn rectangle of fabric with buttons or Velcro to fasten it into a loop – almost like a napkin ring. This is an easy, quick sewing project for someone to introduce themselves to sewing, and it will help them organize the endless mountains of cables we all have! A cord keeper is reusable, looks nicer than a twist-tie, and has many possibilities for decorating and personalizing!
