Book & Craft Pairing: Snow/Winter books & Illuminated Yarn Snow Globes

Pick up a book about snow or winter, & get a complete take-home craft kit!

The Hubbard Library Youth Room is offering a monthly book and craft pairing program; check out a book about our theme of the month, and take home everything you need to make an accompanying craft!

This month we're making beautiful snow globes out of yarn complete with LED lights to go with books about about snow or winter!

After we receive your registration, we will send you a list of available books about the theme. Write back with your selection or let us know your child's age and ask for a book bundle (7-10 books on the theme already packaged up by age level). When you pick your selections up (either at the front desk or call (413)583-3408 x2 for curbside service), you'll also get a kit that contains everything you need to make this pretty craft. If you need enough for multiple children, just let us know.

Preschool storytime: Night Time is Story Time!

10:30am - 11:00am

Our winter preschool storytimes will feature things we associate with the night - bedtime, stars, nocturnal animals, dreams, & more. Each week we'll read 4-6 stories intersperced with songs and games; the program will last 30 minutes. 

The program meets in the library's Program Room, where an air filtering machine will be kept running. Masks are required. When the weather gets nicer, we'll move outside for storytimes!

PLEASE NOTE: You will be registering for the entire series, and do not need to re-register each week.

True Tales! Stories about real people & events for 5-8 year olds

4:15pm - 4:45pm

At the end of a story, has your inquisitive K-2nd grader ever said to you, "Did that REALLY happen, though?" The answer is always "Yes!" during True Tales Storytime!

Join Youth Services librarian July on the lawn whenever the weather is good for tales of real people who have led funny, fascinating, and inspiring lives, and events that really happened! Biographical & historical stories presented in picture book form are the hot new genre, and we’ll laugh and get inspired, entertained, & maybe even educated (shhh!)!

 The program will also be available simultaneously through Zoom each week. Please click below to register.
