Dance Me A Story- Halloween Hustle

 

Be a part of the Halloween Hustle!
Looking for a fun way to introduce dance to your children?
Join us at the library for Dance Me a Story: Halloween Hustle on Monday, October 16 at 6:30pm.

The Ballet Quad Cities does a fabulous job introducing dance to children through books with their Dance Me a Story program. They perform different stories and programs for children throughout the year.  During this program, a Ballet Quad Cities dancer will read the story Halloween Hustle by Charlotte Gunnufson that will be sure to make them feel like dancing! The children then learn dance steps for the book. By the end of the hour program, children retell the story in a dance performance. There will be tutu’s and other costume props for children to put on – or your child can come in their own costume.
This program is guaranteed to be a visual treat!

New This Fall!

September is such a strange month in Libraryland.  It goes from the hustle and bustle of summer reading to an eerie sort of calm.  Programming still goes on, the preschoolers and baby/toddler set still keep us busy, but it is just a different energy.  It is a bittersweet time, to be honest.

 

The great thing about September? NEW PROGRAMS!!!  That’s right!  We have new stuff kicking into gear that should bring a smile to every kiddo’s (and parent’s) face.  Let me take a minute to share with you our amazing Fall lineup.  From new programs, revived programs, and extended programs, we have something for all ages!

Check out what we have in store!

Story Time for Littles

This program is not new, by any means!  In fact, it is one of our most popular programs.  That is way starting in September, Story Time for Littles will be offered each month!  We are so happy to announce this program will now run September through November, take a break off during the month of December, then will be back from January through May.  Join us each Monday morning at either our 9:30 or 10:45 session!  It is a great time to share stories, songs, rhymes, art, and play with your little one.  It is geared at ages birth to 36 months, but as always, siblings are welcome!  If Monday mornings aren’t your thing, don’t forget we offer an evening session twice a month!  Check out the details here.

 

Spotlight

Come explore what’s new, trending, or just plain exciting at Spotlight On…!  The theme is never the same.  This program offers hands-on opportunities to take a deeper, fun approach to popular trending topics like spies, Pokemon, cartooning and comics, robotics, and more.  Program topics will be announced each month and we LOVE suggestions, so if there is a topic, game, or trend sweeping your school that you want to learn more about, let us know!  This program will take place on the third Thursday of each month at 6:30 and will be replacing Lego Lab.  September’s theme is Spy School where we will take a look at some really cool spy hacks and skills that every kid should know just in time for the latest installment of Stuart Gibb’s Spy School series

 

Exploratorium Junior 

It’s BA-AAACK!  By popular demand, we are bringing back Exploratorium Junior.  This program has all the hands-on fun of our regular school-aged Exploratorium but with little bodies and brains in mind!  Preschool and toddler kiddos will have the chance to explore STEAM-based experiments and activities with their grown-up while hearing some great stories to learn even more about the topic of the night!  This program will be offered the fourth Monday of the month at 6 p.m. starting in September and will be replacing Family Story Time.  Straw Rockets is the first topic and should be loads of fun!

Come join us for these and our regular programs such as Creativity Lab, Exploratorium, Preschool Story Time, and more!
