Children's Room Activities
STORY HOUR: Mondays or Thursdays, 10:30 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. Located in the kid’s Activity Room. No sign up is required but space may be limited. There is no age requirement, the recommendation is that children should be able to sit and listen to a few quick stories. A gross motor game or activity usually starts the story time to get everyone moving! Stories are read and a craft project is provided that coincides with the theme of the day.
2 and Under Story Time: Every Wednesday from 10:30 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. Located in the kid’s Activity Room. No sign up is required. We start with our Hello Song then listen to some stories and sing some other songs using our musical instruments. Age appropriate toys are then brought out for the kids to play with, share and socialize. A simple craft or sensory activity will sometimes be provided.
Book Review Group: Held the first Thursday of each month (starting March 2nd), from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Recommended for kindergarten and up. No sign up is required. Do you love to read? What’s your favorite book? What was the worst book you ever read? Come to the Book Review Group and share your thoughts by writing your own book review. You can use the computers located in the kid’s room or hand write your review. Craft materials will be provided to enhance your review and the finished products can be displayed here at the library for patrons to read. An age appropriate craft will also sometimes be provided.
YOga 4 Kids: Wednesdays from 11:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. (starting February 1 st). Preschoolers are welcome to join in a yoga class specifically designed for little people. The focus will be on traditional yoga poses and exercises that imitate the movements and sounds of animals and birds. No sign up is required but space may be limited. Sponsored free of charge from the Friends of the Salisbury Library. Children must be accompanied by a responsible adult, but adult participation is optional.
See the calendar on the Children’s Room page of our website for the complete schedule. Schedule may be subject to change. Space may be limited for some activities, but every step is taken to accommodate everyone.
Salisbury Public Library asks that a responsible adult accompany children to all activities and please no food or drinks. If there is no school for the Triton Regional School District due to inclement weather, there will be no activities held in the kid’s room.
The Salisbury Library will be hosting a special story hour on Wednesday, April 5, 2017 at 10:30 a.m. Come and meet “Rusty the Rooster”, a lovely farm ambassador who will accompany Miss Arleen from The Spencer-Peirce-Little Farm. (http://www.historicnewengland.org). Miss Arleen will read a story and lead children in a discovery visit with Rusty! Children will also be invited to participate in a craft to take home. Space for this exciting event is limited. Please contact Joan Cox, Children’s Librarian, to reserve your space: firstname.lastname@example.org or (978) 465-5071 ext. 109. In the event that this story time becomes full, a wait list will be provided for those people still interested in attending. We will try our best to accommodate everyone.
