The Wee Play Community Project and the Howland Public Library collaborate on programming for children and families. Beginning Thursday, Nov. 7, there will be two opportunities for children to enjoy building together at the library, 313 Main St., Beacon. Every Thursday from 3:45 – 5:00 p.m., children up to age 4 are invited to Block Party/Imagination Playground, and children ages 4 and up may join Brick Party/Lego Club. Block Party incorporates Imagination Playground’s large, foam blocks to encourage unstructured, child-directed free play while allowing children’s imaginations to run wild. Adults must stay in the building. Space is limited so a courtesy RSVP to [email protected] for each session is appreciated, however drop-ins are welcome.
Brick Party for children ages 4 and up is set up so that children can build Lego creations with peers each week. Space is limited. RSVP to [email protected] for each session, though drop-ins are welcome. Contact Ginny Figlia, Head of Youth Services, at 845-831-1134, ext.103 or [email protected]. Check the calendar on the library’s website for weather or holiday cancellations: beaconlibrary.org or call 845-1134, ext.101.
