Grove City Community Library offersBlockPartieswith special hands-on learning for young children!
Block building is no idle pastime. Blocks offer children an almost infinite variety of opportunities to express themselves, from constructing simple designs to veritable engineering feats of bridge building.
Public Block Parties at GCCL are on the 4th Thursday of every month @ 1:30 p.m. from February thru May 2016.
Sensory Storytime meets the first Thursday of every month @ 10:00 a.m. The next meeting date is Thursday, May 5, 2016.
Sensory Storytime sessions are for children 3-6 years old attended by an adult! Sensory storytelling is an interactive event that is especially designed for children with Sensory Processing Disorder, Autism, and other special needs. It combines a book, songs, movement, and activity to engage all 5 senses. Sensory-friendly aspects include accommodations for seating, lighting, sound, story props / other sensory manipulatives & small group size. If your child has difficulty sitting through a traditional Storytime, this inclusive program of stories, songs and activities may be just what you are looking for!
Registration is limited to 10 children. Contact the library to pre-register.
