You may have noticed the lack of weekly event calendars on the blog recently. Do not fear! There’s a new and improved way to find out what children’s events are happening at St. Louis Public Library. The new calendar of events at our main website can now be filtered by age group! Simply point your browser to www.slpl.org and click on the calendar of events link at the top of the screen. From there you can select the age ranges you’d like to see programming for.
Kids of all ages love the games available at lego.com. Check out the fun, interactive bedtime stories for preschoolers. “Read and Build” allows pre-schoolers to create their own story as they build with blocks. Lego also has popular games for older builders; “Forest Ambush Game” is particularly popular here at the library!
Children flocked to the Muny to see the wonderful actors and actresses express their creativity in the musical production of Mary Poppins on Thursday, August 1. St. Louis Public Library staff were there to greet them with information about the Library’s programs and services. Many of the children took the opportunity to express their creativity on the paper provided as seen in these photos. If you like Mary Poppins at Muny, you’ll love these books about nannies and caregivers! Stop by your library to check them out.
