Spring conjures up images of tiny green sprouts, sunshine, and baby animals. At the library, spring means preparing for a new round of storytime (for ages Birth - 5) and many other fun programs. Peek at the program guide for information on the fun things happening at your library!
If your family would like to learn more about the changes that natures experiences in spring, visit the library. We have books and movies about baby animals, spring holidays, sunshine, and more.
There is an old saying about March coming in like a lion and going out like a lamb. This refers to the rapidly changing weather. There are many ways to celebrate the changing of the season, and the changes we can see in the weather each day.
Activities could include:
- Creating a weather vane
- Drawing pictures of the sky, sunshine, or other spring-related changes you and your child see happening in the world.
- Visit a local park each week, and take a photo of your child (or your entire family) in the same spot. Save the photos to a digital album, and print them out at the end of the month to see how much the weather changed around you.
- Talk with your child about how sounds can match our moods, and how weather can influence how we feel. Visit the library to choose music CDS that reflect how you each feel about the weather. Or use your library card to access hoopla, and listen to music on your phone while you’re out enjoying the weather.
