Programs for Kids

The Library offers a full array of programming for different ages and interests throughout the year. Library programs are open to the public and free of charge, sponsored by the Curtis Friends.

Check the Calendar for Kids for current listings and program descriptions.


Children use a game board to complete reading-related activities  and track their progress, with free books and coupons along the way. Pre-readers use a read-to-me version of the game. For preschool – grade 5. (Older kids may join the teen program.) The 2015 Summer Reading Program runs from June 22 – August 21.

Other summer programs and special events include music, crafts, science, and more; check the calendar frequently and please note that some events require registration so we can plan for supplies.

Also, remember to check out displays and activities in the Collaboratory whenever you visit the Library – lots to see and do for children and adults!


Music and Stories
For babies, toddlers, preschoolers and their caretakers, try Summer Rhythms and Rhymes with Teresa Gillis on Wednesday mornings throughout the summer. Jud Caswell offers Musical Story Time on the 2nd Thursday morning of the month, and Benji Latham leads a Musical Toddler Gathering outdoors at the Brunswick Mall (at the Library in case of rain) on the 4th Tuesday of the month at 10:30 AM.

Cornerstones of Science
COS sponsors a variety of science-themed programs for all ages at the library. Check the calendar for current events.

Monthly; check calendar for dates and times.
Informal building and play sessions with LEGO bricks, all ages. We provide the bricks, kids provide the creativity!

Read-to-Me Dog
A trained therapy dog named Josie is available by appointment for children who enjoy reading aloud in a friendly environment. The dog is a terrific listener, and great motivation to keep kids reading!

Finger Fun Lapsit and Play Group and Family Story Time will begin in September, and we’ll have lots of activities for kids  during school vacations. Stay tuned for details!
