The Knoxville Library’s fall programs are gearing up with food for the brain and body. The schedule for school aged children aims to keep kids healthy and active as the weather turns cooler.
Active video games like “Just Dance” on will be offered on alternating Saturdays. Wednesday evenings there will be a hands-on food and nutrition series. These programs will serve up fun along with satisfying the need for good food and exercise.
Beginning on Wednesday, Sept. 18 at 5:30 p.m., kids can learn to create healthy meals and make tasty treats supplemented by vegetables and herbs from the library’s Community Garden. This program is best for children in grades 1 – 5.
Saturday, Sept. 28 at 11:30 a.m. kids in K-5 can play games on the library’s Wii system. It’s always more fun to play video games with a group, so be sure to drop in for some active fun.
Story time for toddlers and preschoolers resumes on Thursday, Oct. 3, at 1:30 p.m. They’ll be sharing age-appropriate books, rhymes, songs and activities designed to engage children’s interest in reading. This interactive half-hour program is planned for children ages 2-5 with an adult caregiver, but all are welcome.
