The Library also offers two study/conference rooms, which are available by reservation and/or on a walk-in basis. Need to meet as a big group? We've got a large space for that, too, which is available by advance reservation. Email with questions or to book your date for that one!

Craft Room Fun: STEAM Saturdays for kids!
STEM Saturdays are back! Join us this Saturday, February 4, for STEM Club and STEM Jr. Little kids (STEM Jrs.) meet at 10 a.m. and will be exploring magnets. Bigger kiddos meet at 1 p.m. and will be exploring forts and catapults. Get ready to attack the fort, STEM clubbers!

ICYMI: STEM Club is for kids in kindergarten through 5th grade, and STEM Club Jr. is geared toward kids ages 3-5 (and their grown-ups). STEM/STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. Each of these sessions will focus on a different topic and will include stories and hands-on experimentation. Kids might get a little messy, so dress accordingly!

Join us on March 22 for a Storybook Tea!
Hey kids! Join us over Spring Break for a celebration of your favorite books at a special, mid-week Storybook Tea Party! That's Wed, Mar 22, at 2 p.m. Tea time!

If you want, come dressed as your favorite storybook character. We'll enjoy some tea and cookies, play games, and make crafts--and we'll chat about our favorite storybooks, of course. Hope you can join us! Register here.
And just a reminder! NKCPL offers regular weekly Storytimes! While kiddos of all ages are welcome at Storytime, these sessions are especially geared toward preschool-aged littles. No registration required!

Join us on Tuesdays @ 5:30 p.m. and Wednesdays @ 10 a.m. for Pre-k Storytime. These sessions include read-alouds, songs/movement, and a super-simple craft/activity. If you want, plan to stay after for Stay-and-Play time with LEGOS/Duplos. Sometimes NKC Schools' Parents as Teachers will join us during this time and provide educational toys for infants and toddlers and creative play kits for toddlers and preschoolers. 

Interested in Sensory playtimes? Join us twice monthly on Friday mornings for sensory-oriented play sessions geared toward neuro-diverse, pre-k-aged kiddos. Find those February dates and details here.
