Epping Library News

EPPING — As a new year begins the Harvey-Mitchell Memorial Library is offering children’s programs four mornings each week. On Mondays at 11:15 a.m., join Miss Eva for Storytime and Crafts, a program designed for local Homeschooling families as well as preschoolers. Miss Eva draws from 35 years as an elementary school teacher, creating a class that enriches a homeschooling curriculum by exploring relevant books and projects with older elementary aged children before turning her focus to the preschoolers with a story and craft just for them. In February, Miss Eva and the older children will be honoring Black History Month by reading about people who were active in America’s civil rights movement. For the preschoolers, there will be valentines and dragons and the fun of Miss Eva’s felt board stories.

Miss Tracie’s Preschool Storyhour returns to Wednesday and Thursday mornings at 10:30 a.m. with songs, finger plays and stories for children under six, followed by a related hands-on activity or craft. After a January filled with owls, sledding and money trees, February will include Olympic rings and medals, valentines and some familiar storybook characters. On Friday mornings, local home daycare providers have a storyhour morning to themselves, but are always happy to include one or two more who don’t mind the busyness of so many little ones.

Coming up the last week of February: Vacation Movie Series features a kid’s movie on the big screen each afternoon at 1:00 p.m. Patrons may enjoy popcorn provided by the library or bring a snack to share!

All these programs are free to the public and do not require pre-registration. For more information, call the children’s room at 679-5944, or the main library number 734-4587.
