February 2019

Love curling up with a good book? So do we! Join our February book club as we read Jacqueline Woodson’s Coretta Scott King Award-winning chapter book, ‘Brown Girl Dreaming’. In vivid poetry Woodson shares what it was like growing up African American in the 60s and 70s. Stop by, or call, the Children’s Desk to register and pick up your copy of the book. Then join our monthly discussion on Thursday, February 7th at 4 pm.

Local folk artist Tex Crawford loves to create and to inspire others to create.  See his original art and learn how to make your own unique whimsical murals and monsters! Join us Saturday, February 9th at 11:00 am.

Then, visit the Quiet Gallery upstairs to see his exhibit afterwards. For children ages 5-11 and their caregiver.

Valentine’s Day is all about loving each other. One way to show love is to hug someone! But, can the hug machine really hug forever? Or will he get tired and quit? Play fun Valentine’s Day games, make robot hugging cards and more! Find out what happens to the hug machine on Thursday, February 14th at 3:30 pm. For children ages 4-8 and their caregiver.

A singing wok and two very different  families come together for a wild adventure on Chinese New Year! Celebrate Chinese New Year and Chinese culture with us through stories and crafts to go on Saturday, February 16th at 11:00 am. For  children ages 4-11 and their caregiver.

What new adventures will the rest of the new year bring? Stop by the Children’s Department to find out!
