Between summer camps, sports, and trips to the pool, there are plenty of fun activities for kids and teens during the summer months. But what about those children who are pre-K and under and may not be big enough to tag along with their older siblings?
Thankfully, there’s still plenty of fun to be had this summer! Check out these local happenings at the Kyle Public Library that are geared toward the littlest members of the family.
Sensory Storytime – Mondays at 10 AM. This program is recommended for children between the ages of 2 and 5. Incorporating active sensory play and music, the program is open to all toddlers and is great for children who may have special sensory challenges or developmental delays.
Lil Yogis – Tuesdays 10:30 AM. Part yoga, part storytime (okay, mostly storytime), Lil Yogis is a half-hour dedicated to reading, along with some active play through yoga poses to go along with the featured book.
Pajama Storytime – Tuesdays at 7 PM. Head back to the Library after Lil Yogis for more reading, but don’t forget to wear your pajamas. Aimed at children 6 and below, this half-hour of fun will include stories and songs. It’s the perfect way to wind down after a fun summer day before heading off to bed.
Preschool storytime – Wednesdays 10:30 AM. This reading session is all about preschoolers. Designed for children ages 2 to 5, parents are invited to bring their children to the library for a storytime session that is aimed at helping to foster a love of reading and active learning through songs, finger plays, and other activities.
Baby lap-sit – Thursdays at 10 AM. It’s never too early to introduce your children to reading, and this event is all about babies. Geared towards children 0 to 18 months old, parents (or grandparents) will be invited to sit with their children for an hour of nursery rhymes, songs, reading, and maybe even a little bit of active play tossed in for good measure.
Toddler Time – Thursdays at 11 AM. If you have an older toddler in tow, hang around after Baby lap-sit because this program keeps the reading train chugging along in the next hour. Recommended for children 18-26 months old, children will be presented with both new and classic stories that encourage reading and language skills through songs, felt boards, and other activities.
¡Los Cuentos! Bilingual storytime – Fridays 10:30 AM. Designed for young children ages 0 to 5 years of age, this program will present stories in both English and Spanish. There will also be songs, finger plays, and other activities to go along with the stories and help stimulate children’s early language skills.
These are just a few of the many events happening each week at the Kyle Public Library. The local library has something for everyone, with a range of free events, classes, and resources.
