Cool programs for kids in the warm Carrick Library


Youth looking for something to do during these cold winter days can find plenty of activities each week at the Carrick Library.

Tuesday means Teen Time on Tuesdays at 4:30 p.m., where 6th to 12th graders can engage in cool art projects, epic games, music, movies or just chilling out with friends.

Wednesdays are for the younger crowd with Toddler & Preschool Tales at 10:30 a.m., and Kids Club after school. Toddler & Preschool Tales is a 30 – 40 minute program where children and adults get up and get moving with interactive stories, songs and rhymes.

Kids Club, on Wednesdays at 3:30 p.m., is for anyone in grades K-5 to hang out and try something new. This is the time for kids to meet friends, build social skills and use their imaginations while having fun with crafts, games and technology.

Looking ahead to February, weekly chess classes for youth in grades K- 8 begin on Tuesday, Feb. 2 at 6 p.m. Participants will improve their chess skills by learning basic strategy and techniques. Classes are for those who know how the pieces move and want to learn more in preparation for the Annual Library Chess Tournament on Saturday, March 5.

Celebrate Valentine’s Day on Saturday, Feb. 13 by playing a life-size game of Candy Land. Kids will walk among giant candy canes and lollipops to win a sweet treat. This program is designed for families with children from ages 3 to 12.
