PRESCHOOL PROGRAMS

Preschool storytimes are programs designed for specific age groups. For four weeks in a row, preschoolers and an accompanying adult attend a storytime that is a combination of stories, songs, action rhymes and crafts. TIME FOR TWOS and TIME FOR THREES are offered twice a year at the Main Library and each branch.

PRESCHOOL STORYTIME is designed for three to five-year-old children and an accompanying adult and is offered at various times during the year, including evenings.

PRESCHOOL CRAFT PROGRAMS provide young children and their care-givers with the opportunity for artistic expression and are often related to the holidays or seasons.


SCHOOL-AGE PROGRAMS

SCHOOL-AGE CRAFT PROGRAMS for children in kindergarten through grade seven provide children with the opportunity for more advanced artistic expression. Programs are often based on seasonal holidays or activities.

SPECIAL EVENTS, which can include author visits, puppet shows, musicians, storytellers, magicians, creative dramatics, clowns and guest speakers, are offered periodically and are often funded by the Friends of the Libraries of Woodbridge Township.


SUMMER READING CLUB

This club is our annual extravaganza for preschoolers and school-age children. The Club consists of activities done at home and at the library. Children join reading teams and fill out reading logs at the library, recording the amount of time they spend reading or listening at home. Weekly programs are also offered.
