Calling young inventors! The Central Children's Library would like to welcome children ages 8-11 for LittleBits Camp, a three-day workshop where kids can learn about building with LittleBits and create their own invention. Want to make a guitar? Or make an mini scoreboard? The possibilities are endless with LittleBits. The workshop will take place Tuesday, April 16, through Thursday, April 18, from 2-3 p.m. Registration is required, as space is limited. Please call 336-703-3040 to register.
World Poetry Day is March 21. Let's celebrate with reading and writing the most popular poetry form in the world: the Haiku. Eliot Daniel Esparza will lead us in writing haiku. The simplicity, brevity, and familiar wonders of nature may even inspire you to write your poetry lines in your own native language. All ages and languages welcome!
Every year I try to do a reading challenge by tackling a list of books I normally wouldn’t read. I always end up reading something I never would have picked up. March is National Reading Month. It’s also the month that we celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday. Thus the first reading challenge - to read a children’s book you have never read before. It could be a classic you never got around to - “The Wind in the Willows” or “Hatchet.” You could try something new like “The First Rule of Punk."
Children and caregivers can attend sensory-friendly programs throughout Forsyth County Public Libraries. Please check the list of upcoming events for more information.
