Children Homeschool

Homeschool programs will resume once library fully opens.

Every Wednesday we have Homeschool Hour at 10:30 AM. Families are invited to come and participate in games and learning activities by age. Children ages 4-5 will be in the storytime room, ages 6-8 will be in the meeting room, ages 9-11 will be in the Makerspace and ages 12-teen will be in the teen area.

Every Friday we have Children's Theater at 10:30 AM for children ages 9-12. This program introduces children to beginning acting techniques. They will then use their new skills to put on a play in front of a live audience! Registration and reading skills are required. Only 20 spots are available and registration is for the entire series. Performance date is Saturday, May 2nd @ 11:00 AM. Registration is for the entire series, September 2019-May 2020. 
Check the event calendar for other homeschool programs as we add new programs regularly.
