At the request of local caregivers and with the help of the Friends of the Library, the Burr Oak room in the lower level of the library will transform on Tuesday mornings to the Play & Build room.
A wide variety of open-ended play opportunities for newborns to 6-year-olds will be available from 10 am-noon.
There will be large and fine motor skill developing toys along with color identification and shape sorting activities to allow children to learn the skills of early literacy, problem solving, sharing, and working within groups in a safe environment outside the home. Children practice decision-making skills, move at their own pace, and discover their own interests during play. The large area in the Burr Oak room also provides space for the little ones to burn off some energy in the winter months.
Children must always be supervised by their parents or caregivers, but it’s a great way to meet other local families and neighbors.
Come play and build friendships, block towers, muscles, skills, and confidence!
