The Moore Public Library brings much more than books to the community, with a vast array of programs and services offered for all ages.
Introducing children to a love of the library is a huge part of what we do. It’s demonstrated by a wide range of themed story times geared to multiple age groups.
For babies under age 2, Lapsit Story Time at 10 a.m. Wednesdays is a time for the children and their caregivers to enjoy stories, activities and the popular bubble time! Children older than 2 are invited at 10 a.m. Tuesdays for Preschool Story Time, and Pre-K Play at 10 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 12, helps children with pre-literacy skills and to develop fine and gross motor skills through play.
Sensory Play Time, at 4 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 16, is designed in a less-crowded setting for children of all ages. Advance registration is required for an afternoon taking part in a variety of sensory activities.
School-age children can partake in Kids Club (4:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 14); Tween Scene (4:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 28); and teen girls meet Mondays as well for Girls Who Code, an initiative introducing young women to coding and many other aspects of computers and technology.
Workout season is every season at the library, with a pair of weekly activities. Beginner’s Yoga takes place most Mondays at 6 p.m., while energetic Zumba classes are featured at 6 p.m. most Thursday evenings. Either teens or adults may participate, and registration, as well as a signed waiver, are required in advance.
A new experience taking place monthly is the D&D Dungeon Crawl, next offered at 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 13. It’s for Dungeons and Dragons players to bring their level 5 characters (or play with a pre-made one already on site) and explore challenges in the classic role-playing game. The activity is for ages 18 and up, and advance registration is encouraged.
Authors or would-be authors, or just anyone interested in writing, are invited to the library’s monthly Writers’ Workshop, at 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 20. This group will offer critiques and discussion in support of each other’s work and also perform writing exercises. Participants should bring a three or four page writing sample. Ages 18 and up may attend, and registration is asked in advance.
