Kids Programs & Events

Live Stream Events

Due to the ongoing pandemic, we have moved as many of our events to an online format as possible Please follow the links to join us! We are using the Zoom platform for our events so you will be prompted to download software/app. It is completely free to use and you don't need to create an account!

Due to concerns over hosting open Zoom meetings we have taken every precaution we can. As such, you will need a password to access our events. Please message us on Facebook, send an email to nick@creswell-library.org.

 November 2020 - Cookies in a Jar

Our summer reading craft kits were a big success this year and we want to continue providing similar activities for the Creswell Community. So, without further ramblings, here is our first activity. We will be making cookies! Pick up a recipe, non-perishable dry goods, then join us online via Zoom to bake cookies with us! We will have two Zoom meetings, one for kids, and a second for teens. 

The Zoom meeting for kids will be on Friday, 11/13, at 4pm.

The Zoom meeting for teens will be on Friday, 11/20, at 4pm.

Here is a link to sign up for the activity!

Babytime is Friday at 10:00am

Babytime is designed for kids 0-3 and is 20 minutes of fun books, lap bounces, songs, and fingerplays! Be sure you are ready to participate with your kiddo. If you have a bigger kid joining in, it would be good for them to have a stuffed animal to use during our lap bounces.

Pre-K Storytime is Thursday at 10:00am

Pre-K Storytime is designed for preschoolers and will have longer books, songs, and fingerplays. Some of the books are long enough for younger kids to get squirmy but that’s ok! We would love to have them along too.
