Do you love to dabble with paint, glue, scissors, pastels, charcoal, etc.?  Does the art in picture books or museums make you itch with creativity?  Then this is the book club for you!

The book selection for each month will be about the life and/or works of a famous artist.  When we gather together, we’ll briefly talk about the artist and playfully explore the style of that artist with a fun art project.

Registration is required.

PAGE-TURNING PALS
Page-turning pals is a special program for children who need a little nudge to grow into their love for reading. Sophie – a dog belonging to our new friend Martha -- loves children and loves to have children read to her.

If your child would benefit from the gentle encouragement of these patient canine listeners, please consider signing up to give your child the chance to shine at reading.

There are four 15-minute time slots available on the third Monday of each month, October-December from 4-5 pm. Call the Children’s Room at 978-399-2302 to reserve a slot. Parents & Caregivers are asked to wait in the Children's Room during the program.
