December Children's Programs at the Library!

What a lovely way to start any day at the library! We invite you to bring your pre-school aged children in for programming.  Our youngest learners are bound to have a blast during Let’s Play! This dynamic playgroup is designed for the more active child (3 and under). We've created a safe space for families to connect and children to interact with each other in open play. The loose structure will allow the group to fluidly spend time socializing as well as learning. We’ll meet at 10:00 - 11:30am on Tuesday, December 5th at the Tusten-Cochecton Branch 10:00am on Tuesday, December 19th at the Jeffersonville Branch of the Western Sullivan Public Library. 

Another fun opportunity for preschool aged children a bit older (ages 3-5) is a more traditional storytime where we read together, sing songs, learn age-old rhymes, participate in felt board-type activities, craft and play with our friends! We’ll meet at 10:15am on Thursday, December 14th at the Delaware Free Branch. 

Some good old family fun is happening during Callicoon’s Dickens on the Delaware. We’re so excited to be able to bring back our annual tradition of Gingerbread Cookie Decorating. Join us at the Delaware Free Branch of the Western Sullivan Public Library on Saturday, December 9th from 12:30PM to 3:30PM and decorate homemade gingerbread cookies.  

And of course, the year wouldn’t be complete without lots of Winter Break fun! We’ll be hosting a Kids’ Craft at Delaware Free Branch of the Western Sullivan Public Library on Thursday, December 28th from 2:00 - 3:00 PM. Together we’ll learn different techniques to turn cute paper into tiny notebooks. We’ll have supplies and instructions ready for children ages 6+. Make sure to secure your spot today!

We’ll also be hosting time for Family Gaming at Jeffersonville Branch of the Western Sullivan Public Library on Friday, December 29th from 2:00 - 3:00 PM. Board games, card games, and video trivia games will all be set up for you to test your skills and challenge each other to battle…ship that is.
