Children and Seniors
This intergenerational storytime is designed to bring the community together in new ways! Whether you are a grandparent and want an excuse to bring your grandchildren to storytime, a storytime parent who wants to get the kids’ grandparents out of the house, or if you are a caregiver to a senior who is missing playing with children, this program is specially designed for you. Seniors will get to help sing songs and do crafts with the children. Kids will get to meet new people and learn from the wisdom of our community elders as they chat together over a shared art project. This storytime is also specifically open to adults with dementia with a caregiver. Registration requested.
Wednesdays, 10:00 a.m.
Get creative exploring art through open-ended activities with a variety of materials! Each session will start with a story, followed by an art activity with a focus on the process rather than the result. For children around ages 2-5. Dress for mess!
