In addition to its regular storytimes on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, the Milton Public Library is hosting programs for young people during the week of Sept. 8 to Sept. 14.
Rain or shine, there will be a storytime for all ages at the Milton Farmers’ Market on Thursday, Sept. 12 from 4 to 4:30 p.m. Children’s librarians will read stories and sing songs. Parents/caregivers must remain with and look after their children since this is not a drop-off event. No registration is required.
In partnership with the Milton Early Childhood Alliance, it will be Free-Play Friday for children up to the age of 5 on Sept. 13 from 10 a.m. to noon. Drop by and enjoy puzzles, games, and activities in the library’s Story Hour room.
Sept. 14 will be Scratch Saturday for ages 7 to 12 from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. Do you love coding or want to learn some? Have fun learning how to make your own interactive stories, games, and animations and share your creations with others in the online community.
Scratch helps young people learn to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively, all of which are essential skills for life in the 21st century.
Registration is required. Laptops will be provided, but participants should feel free to bring their own.
