Youth Programs

Preschool Story Time is on Thursdays at 10:00 am in the Community and Youth Services Room.  You may enter through the back door from the parking lot, or use the ramp (facing the school) to directly enter the room.  Remaining themes for July are: July 24 – Rainbows, with a trip outside to draw with sidewalk chalk; and July 31 – Frogs, with a lily pad craft.  If the weather is not cooperating for the July 24 outside chalk drawing, we’ll switch it with the theme for the 31st!  We’ll be taking a vacation from the Story Time for the month of August.

We have a series of Kids Crafts, suitable for ages 6 to 10, for the month of July!  Each is held on Thursday at 11:30 am.  This is what we have scheduled for the rest of the month:  July 24 – a Garden Critter made from cans; and July 31 – a Lightning Bug made from soda bottles.  We’ll provide all the materials for these crafts, and partial funding is provided by Senator Libous’ BOOKS Program.

A Middle School Reading Book Club started on Wednesday, July 2, at 3 pm, and continues each Wednesday through July.  We’ll have some fun activities and serve snacks, too.

And the Chenango County 4-H staff brings “Fizz, Boom, 4-H” to the Library on Wednesday mornings at 11 am from July 16 through August 6.  Come join the fun as 4-H brings books alive with FUN science experiments.  Learn about lightning, sound, electricity, and more.  Children in grades K through 6 are welcome to attend.  Check out the Chenango County 4-H Facebook page for more information.
