Story Trail (Mondays, 10:00 & 10:30 am):
There’s a new story on the Story Trail! If you loved “The Gruffalo”, come by anytime to enjoy “The Secret Shortcut” by Mark Teague. Narrated walks continue on (non-rainy) Monday mornings at 10:00 & 10:30. The Story Trail (located on the Woodland-Toboggan Hill Trail starting by the Merrickville Public School parking lot) will be up until Thanksgiving!
StoryTime (Fridays, 10ish):
We’ll be kicking off the season with an outdoor Storytime (whether permitting). Our drop-in StoryTime is a great way for toddlers and preschoolers to develop early literacy and group interaction skills in a fun and relaxed setting. StoryTime promotes key skills that will help your child become a successful reader – through stories related to a theme, songs, rhymes & rhythm instruments. Plus, a simple craft to encourage motor skills. New StoryTimers are always welcome!
LEGO Builder Club (Saturdays, 10-12, drop-in):
Drop by on Saturday mornings to build with LEGO and explore our other building toys: gears, magnets & more. Bring a friend for some heavy-duty construction fun.
