Programs for Kids

Story Times Print E-mail

TOTALLY TODDLERS is designed for children ages 2 to 3. The program is shorter than Movers and Shakers Story Time and offers age appropriate books, songs, and fingerplays. Children in this age range tend to have a shorter attention span, so several short activities are used between each book in order to hold the child's interest.

Dawson County Library - 11 AM Wednesdays

  • Fall 2014: September 10 - October 15

MOVERS AND SHAKERS is intended for children ages  4 to 5. We hope this will be a fun and exciting experience for you and your child.  The programs are designed to best serve groups of not more than 20 children.  No pre-registration is required, but groups larger than five are requested to call at least two days in advance.  The programs  last 45 minutes to an hour and may  include songs, finger plays and crafts in addition to the stories.
