Stories for Kids ages 6 and up

Hey, Little Ant
Friday, September 28 at 16.15

What would you do if the ant you were about to step on looked up and started talking? That’s what happens in this funny, thought-provoking book. Written by a father-daughter team, this conver­sa­tion between two creatures, large and small, is bound to inspire important discus­si­ons. It might even answer that classic childhood question: to squish or not to squish? Sign up for the fun at the library.



Join us for the first TeenTime and find out what it’s all about!
Friday, September, 28 at 16.15

It`s TeenTime! The American Library has a new set of events for all of you, who are not in elementary school anymore! Cool crafts, books and game tips and other creative adventures are waiting for you.



Prepare for the Scare!
Friday, October 12, 2018 at 16.15

In prepa­ra­tion for the Halloween party on October 26th we’ll read the book Room on a Broom by Julia Donaldson together and plan a party based on it for the younger children. If you have games and craft ideas, bring them along to show the rest of us.
