Busy Bags are small, portable, manipulative activities for toddlers and/or preschoolers. Some help with fine motor skills, others teach pre-literacy skills, and others are just a fun and quiet distraction to help pass time.
The Busy Bag program is an adult-only program; there is no childcare. This is because it takes almost two hours to assemble all the activity bags that you will take home with you at the end of the evening.
If you sign up for Busy Bags, you are asked to either be a member or become a member of the Friends of the Library (individual membership is $10/year; family membership is $20/year). This membership helps offset the cost of supplies for the Busy Bags and also allows you to be part of a great organization. Friends' dues go toward helping fund library programs and grants. Also, if you choose, you may volunteer to staff Friends events and/or voice opinions on how best to support the Library.
Sign up here or by calling Youth Services at 873-8342. Registration is limited to 12 adults. (No children.)
