Programs for families and library users ages 0-18
- Storytimes, including programs developed with the development of babies, toddlers, pre-school aged children, and school-aged children in mind. Currently, we offer Storytimes every Wednesday and Friday morning at 10:30 a.m.-11:00 a.m.
- Super Saturday, held once each month during the school year.At Super Saturday we explore fun projects and learn new skills! These are family programs, and all ages of youth are invited!
- Early School Release Programs, when the library hosts a special midweek program because Richland schools release early. Past programs have included making (and demolishing) a cardboard city and a “prep a pot” event where we got soil, seeds, and pots ready for planting and enjoying.
- Movies, in the Story Room. The library has purchased a license to show popular films.
- Special Events, where we get to have a LOT of extra fun! Special events are things like birthday parties for famous children’s literature characters (Harry Potter, the American Girls, etc.), outdoor events on the library grounds such as Chalkapalooza, and much, much, more. Miss Emily Z. is full of ideas. 🙂
Please note that ALL patrons are welcome at youth services events. At storytimes everyone, including older and younger siblings are welcome! Dads, uncles, and grandpas are welcome at storytime. You do not need a library card to attend library programs (though they are free, sign up is easy, and all the cool kids have one so get one!), and if there are fines on your account that prohibit checking out materials you can still come to library programs. You don’t need to attend Richland schools to participate in library programs or check out books from our library– you don’t even have to live in Richland Center. Everyone is welcome!
Current library policy states that no child under 6 should be in the children’s room without an adult. Parents or caregivers are requested to remain with their children in other areas of the library. Librarians and library staff ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE for supervising unattended children. Please keep your kiddos close!
