This Month’s Program Highlights features:

New Lap Sit Program & Teen Circle

With the change in weather comes a change in programming! The month of February saw the branch begin a new series of programming for babies. Children’s Librarian, Adam Tully, is conducting weekly lap sit programs for children ages birth to 18 months. The program works with simple movements and rhymes meant to stimulate thinking and activity in your baby. The lap sit programs occur on Tuesday’s at 11:30am in the branch meeting room.

The other initiative is our new “Teen Circle” spearheaded by Ms. Peak who approached teens and asked them what they wanted to see in the branch for them, a discussion ensued with ground rules being set and games being ordered and the fun has begun.

Take a look at what else we’ve got coming up for you in March:

Cleveland Museum of Art-In Your Neighborhood – Art Club!

Staff from the Cleveland Museum of Art will be joining here at Collinwood Branch for a fun and exciting art club. The theme for this programming will be about ‘A Room’.
