Hey kiddos! Join us for STEM fun on Nov 12!
Did you know? The Library now offers monthly Saturday STEM learning sessions for children: STEM Club for kids in kindergarten through 5th grade, and STEM Club Jr. for kids ages 3-5 (and their grown-ups). STEM/STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math.

Each session will focus on a different topic and will include stories and hands-on experimentation/challenges. Kids might get a little messy, so dress accordingly!

Next up? Fairy Tale STEM challenges (for both groups) on Saturday, November 12. STEM Club Jr. meets at 10 a.m., and STEM Club meets at 1 p.m.

And just a reminder! NKCPL offers a full slate of 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.

We also offer a Sensory Storytime on the 2nd and 4th Fridays of the month at 10 a.m. These sessions, geared toward neurodiverse pre-k-aged kiddos, feature fun read-alouds and lots of sensory play.
