The Alliance Public Library is proud to host a number of programs for community youth, including Friday Fun Days, Book Club and Story Time.
Friday Fun Days is a family activity held on most Friday afternoon from 2:30 to 4:00 and includes a make and take craft. Children and youth are invited to meet in the library Community Rooms for crafts and other activities on days when school releases early. Most activities are geared toward elementary and middle school-aged students, but simpler crafts will be available for younger children. Children 6 and under, or those who may need assistance, must be accompanied by a responsible caretaker.
- January 12th ~ Breakout Lock Box where participants will work together to decipher clues, solve riddles and crack codes to obtain the combination for the lock box and win a prize.
- January 26th ~ Parachutes and Hovercrafts
For more information, please contact the Children and Youth Services Librarian, Elaine Bleisch, at 762-1387.
Story Time is for children ages 3 to 6 years, and is held 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.
