Early childhood is such a precious time to spend with stories, books, and socializing. The Escanaba Public Library is a champion of this important effort, and I remember visiting several times a week when I was young. I wish I could be there now, attending these great events, so please take your kids there, for my sake...
Toddler Time is Wednesdays from 10:30 to 11:30 am, a free event (with pre-registration) for stories, songs, movement, puppets, and crafts for 2-4 year olds and their parents.
Lapsit is Fridays at 10:30 am for babies 3-23 months old, another free event (with pre-registration) with stories full of singing, rhyming, bouncing and clapping.
Saturday Story Hour will be once a month; the next story hour will be October 20 at 1:30p pm for fun stories, silly songs, special guests, and themed activities. Family Games will take that time slot on October 6th, when you can bring your own games or try something from the Library’s collection.
There are a few other special events n October focused on grown-ups, including Growing U.P. with Storyteller Pete Griffin about his life, natural history, leadership, and learning as a (former) forest ranger, and the What’s It Worth appraisal event with author and antiques expert Mark Moran on the 18th.
We stole this information right out of the local newspaper (thanks Daily Press!), but you are welcome to call us if you have any additional questions or if you would like us to hold activities like these at our store. Thanks for being with us!
