The Sanibel Public Library is offering a variety of programs for adults and youth.

At 10 a.m. Sept. 26, licensed insurance professional Anthony Idaspe, with the Informed Choice Insurance Agency, will present a program about Medicare choices. It is for educational purposes, no plan-specific details will be shared. Idaspe is not connected with the federal Medicare program.

The following weekly programs are available for youth:

– Family Storytime: Most Wednesdays at 11 a.m. and on Thursdays at 11 a.m. with Youth Service Librarian Deanna Evans. For preschoolers and their caregivers, the program helps develop pre-reading skills through songs and stories.

– After-School Crew: Most Thursdays at 3 p.m. with Youth Service Librarian Deanna Evans. Kindergarten through fifth graders will get to meet some new books and enjoy puzzles, games, crafts and snacks.

For program scheduling, refer to the library’s online calendar at www.sanlib.org.

There is no registration required nor additional cost to participate.

Come play in the Think Tank on Fridays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The MagixBox projects interactive images from the ceiling to the floor. Squish mosquitoes, crush eggs or make a trail of stars. It teaches children to use modern technology and to cooperate with others.

September is Library Card Sign-up Month, a time when the library joins the American Library Association and libraries nationwide to make sure that every student has the most import school supply – a library card. Studies show that children who are read to in the home and who use the library perform better in school.

Library cards are available to residents of Sanibel and Lee County at no charge.

Visitor library cards are available for a $10 annual fee.

The Sanibel Public Library is open Mondays and Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
