Fall Into Autumn, And Leaf Through New Events At the Littlestown Library

Autumn is breezing in early, with teasing hints of cinnamon and cider, and visions of magenta, tawny gold and deep umber.  Fall into exciting family programs, from Babies and Books, to Toddler Time, Book Bag Bonanza and more!   Preschool Story Time, Read with KPETS Dogs, and patron-led educational programs also return.  Stop in, leaf through the latest event calendars.  Pick the ‘apple of your eye’ programs and enjoy autumn with Littlestown Library.

Jump into fun early with new, expanded Story Times.  Get a new morning start for baby and family with “Babies and Books” story time for ages 1 to 24 months.  Join stories, songs and stretches on Thursday, 9:30 a.m.   While baby giggles and smiles, families learn about early childhood play and development.

New fun abounds at Toddler Time on Thursday, 10:30 a.m.  Tots and families move to music, songs, stories, with creative play and fun for minds, young bodies and spirits. 

Preschool Story Time returns with clever, enthralling adventures led by Ms Kat and friends.  Come in Wednesday, 10:30 a.m. for a new tale, activity and program that bring new adventures for the mind and imagination.

Learning and creative play happen in new ways at the Littlestown Library this year.  Colorful, enticing and educational activities are available for families and kids, with many thanks to the State Library of Pennsylvania, local sponsors and donors.  Want to make a magnetic castle?  Construct a prehistoric playground with logs and dinosaurs? Gear up for fun with the new Play K and creative learning sets available at Littlestown Library.

Super Second Saturday returns, on the move!  Come kickoff family fun on Saturday, September 23, 2017.  But that’s the fourth, not the second Saturday, you say? Reading fun is a cinch any way with Littlestown Library. Sign up early for “Book Bag Bonanza” at 1 p.m. Saturday, September 23.  Make your own personalized carry sack for library books and more. Decorate it as you like – colorful spangles or elegantly simple.  Advance registration is required; sign up early to reserve your free cinch sack!

On October 14, Super Second Saturday is back on track! Come “Read with Dogs” at 10:30 a.m. Shake a tail, read with our favorite KPETs doggies (and handler).   At 1:00 p.m. come to the “Button Bash” and get ready for Halloween with stickers, silly faces, sparkles, or bugs, bats and belfries on your buttons!

November brings family, friends and blessings to mind.  Join the Fourth Annual Veterans Tribute, honoring those in the military service and their families.  Saturday, November 11, share turkey tales with the KPETS doggies, then make stuffed turkey crafts.  December lights up our lives with holiday cheer and celebration.  On Saturday, December 9, tell holiday stories to the KPETS doggies, and later, make holiday decorations with the Arts Honors Club from LittlestownHigh School.
