Children’s Programs Resume at Desmond-Fish Library

Puppet show takes place Sept. 15

Fall programs for children are starting up at the Desmond-Fish Library with story hours, crafts, music programs and a free puppet show.

A puppet show presented by the 4H puppeteers will take place on Saturday, Sept. 15 at 2 p.m. in the program room. The show is appropriate for all ages and is free of charge. Refreshments will be served after the show.

A Music and Movement class for toddlers will begin on Sept. 19 at 10:15. Children between 1 and 4 years of age may be enrolled in the class. Gabriel Johnson, a pianist and professional singer, will lead the children in songs. Children will also have the opportunity to play instruments and do parachute play.

The story hour for children between ages 3 and 5 years is held each Wednesday at 1:30. This story hour is ongoing except for school vacations and holidays. The children’s librarian reads several stories, and then the children do a craft on a related theme.

A craft hour for school-age children is held each Tuesday at 4 p.m. with a nutritious snack. Crafts in store for this fall include dried-flower pictures, decorated pen holders, apple stamping, leaf rubbing, and pumpkin painting.
