Books and Blocks Storytime

 January 13th and January 27th at 6:30 p.m.

A block party is a new one-hour storytime and free play with blocks. At each program, children will listen to books and then have the opportunity to let their imaginations run wild as they build with many different types of blocks. No registration is required.
Location: Library Meeting Room


Children learn best through hands-on experiences, and block play is a valuable part of cognitive development in preschoolers. Using blocks, children can piece together shapes to create a bigger picture, whether it is a representation of something they have seen or from their imagination. Exploring with blocks also nurtures an understanding for math, science, language and dramatic play. Whether the shapes are wooden, colored, snap-together or boxes, blocks will enhance your child’s learning activities.
