Youth

The Alliance Public Library is proud to host a number of programs for community youth, including Friday Fun Days, Lego Club, Code Club and Story Time.

Friday Fun Days: Join us for a fun activity on the first and third Fridays of the month! Open to children of all ages and parents/caregivers are welcome to participate as well! Children 6 and under must be accompanied by a responsible caregiver. Meets in the Community Rooms from 2:30 to 4:00 p.m.

Friday Fun Days will resume  in September, 2019

Story Time: Held for children ages 3 to 6 years every Tuesday at 10:00 a.m. and Thursday at 1:00 p.m. The themed programs include reading time, craft time and other various activities designed to encourage young children to develop a love of books, reading and libraries. Children should be able to sit independently and focus for 30-45 minutes in order to attend. Please register your child(ren) at the circulation desk prior to participating in story time.

Storytime will resume in September, 2019

Lego Club: All children from Kindergarten and up are welcome to come build with Legos in a positive social environment. Parents must register their child at the circulation desk prior to attending. Meets on most Tuesdays in the community rooms from 3:45-4:45.

Lego Club will resume in September, 2019

Code Club: Children 8 and older can learn to code while playing computer games! Research has shown that children learn these skills best by doing but are more likely to “do” in a group setting with peers. We will start out simple and children will work at their own pace but can actually learn to build their own video games and apps. This is an informal setting with an adult facilitator. Participants can bring their own laptops (recommended) and APL will provide some as well. Children must be able to read and work independently. Meets most Thursdays in the community rooms from 3:45-4:45. The Fall schedule varies due to additional library events.

Code Club will resume in September 2019
