By Staff | Apr 24, 2019

The Sanibel Public Library recently announced its upcoming programs for adults and youth.

Experience virtual reality on April 29 from 10 a.m. to noon. Open to patrons ages 10 and older, the activity is available on a first come, first served basis. No registration is required to participate.

The library also hosts the following weekly programs for children:

– Family Storytime: Wednesdays at 11 a.m. and Thursdays at 11 a.m. For young readers and their caregivers, the program helps develop pre-reading skills through songs and stories.

– After-School Clique: Wednesdays at 3 p.m. Geared for children in fourth through sixth grade, the group will craft, build, make and play, with books and a provided snack thrown in.

– After-School Crew: Thursdays at 3 p.m. Children in kindergarten through third grade will enjoy favorite books, never-knew-existed books, games and crafts, with a snack provided.

– Reading to Bessie: Rain-free Thursdays from 3:45 to 5 p.m. Have fun reading to Bessie, a bearded collie and Reading Education Assistance Dog. Participants can sign up on the spot.

In addition, a Bedtime Storytime will take place on April 25 at 7 p.m. Designed for infants through elementary-age, youth can wear jammies, bring a teddy bear, and enjoy stories and a few cookies.

During the month of May, the weekly youth programs will not be available.

The programming will resume in June with Youth Service Librarian Deanna Evans.
