These programs are run as a “drop in” but all children attending must enroll.
June 6th: “Stuffed animal Storytime and Sleepover”. It’s time to dress in pajama’s and head to MPL with a favorite stuffed animal for a snack, storytelling done by professional storyteller Jaime Becktal, and a craft. Then bid your animal good night and let it have a sleepover at the library! In the morning collect your furry friend and find out all about their adventures in the night.
June 13th: The Telluride Repatory Theater will present a three person play titled “Bonn Voyage,” about the ocean and its creatures, as seen by a wacky threesome of shipmates.
June 20th: “Awesome Aliens” Come explore what we know about life on other planets. Local artist Jaime Becktal will be on hand to help with a craft and will do some truly amazing face painting(think Avatar!). Imaginations required!
June 27th: “Heavy Equipment Petting Zoo” Dreaming big includes thinking about “what you want to be when you grow up”. Visit the library on this day and meet folks (and their big engines) that fight fires, track wildlife, do police work, dig enormous holes in the ground, etc. etc.
Wholesome snacks will be provided during each program. Younger children may attend if accompanied by an adult throughout the program. We will also conduct a reading contest bingo (for kids, teens and adults) with books of their choice as prizes for all who complete the bingo. All programs are free.
