After a short winter break, the Youth Services Department at the McPherson Public Library, 214 W. Marlin St. will resume its free public programs on Jan. 6. From birth through 12th grade, there is something offered for all ages.
Among the library’s regular scheduled children’s programs are Storytime, Toddler Time and Mother Goose Time. Each of these story sessions will give kids of varying ages a chance to listen to some stories and participate in activities that are geared to enhance early literacy skills for the respective age groups. On Tuesdays, school-aged children will have the opportunity to participate in the Curiosity Club; these events will change weekly and can range from building with LEGOs to making slime.
“As always we rely on feedback to guide our youth programs,” Youth Services Coordinator Jennifer McCulley said. “We had numerous teens request more meetings for our popular Anime Club and we want them to know that their voices have been heard. This January the club will now meet every Monday afternoon.”
For teens in grades 6-12, there will be plenty of options this fall. On Tuesdays, teens can stop by to participate in a different activity. Some weeks there may be a movie or games, while other weeks there will be crafts. Additional teen activities will include Anime Club, Writers’ Guild and the return of the Teen Advisory Squad of Kansas.
Supplies will be provided by the library and there is no cost for these programs. For further information or for a complete schedule of events, please contact the library at 620-245-2570 or http://www.macpl.org.
