The Tecumseh Public Library welcomes its youngest visitors for its weekly Toddler Story Time series, set for 11 a.m. on Thursday mornings throughout September.
The first week, families and their children up to age 5 are invited to the bilingual story event Family Play Time/La hora de jugar en familia on Sept. 1, with Florencia Briglie leading activities where children use their brains through simple play.
On Sept. 8, 15, 22 and 29, Toddler Story Time features stories, songs, fingerplays, crafts and more, with caregivers having a chance to learn early literacy tips to get their children ready to read.
Registration is not required to attend any of the story times.
As a new school year approaches, the Tecumseh Public Library has options for local students on Wednesday afternoons. Ages 12 to 17 are invited to participate in the events, which each begin at 4 p.m.
The schedule for August teen events includes:
Aug. 10 – Minecraft, an afternoon of challenges, books and a craft based on the popular game;
Aug. 17 – Book Bags, a craft program to make a book bag just in time for the start of school;
Aug. 24 – Gaming, for ages 10 and up to relax after an afternoon of school;
Aug. 31 – MaKey MaKeys, a unique way to turn ordinary objects into music makers.
Registration is required in advance separately for each program, except for the Aug. 24 Gaming event.
