Warwick NY libraries offer kids so much more than dusty old books (not that there's anything wrong with dusty old books). They open up a world of discovery for kids of all ages. Gone are the days when you simply went to the library to check out a book or do research for a project. Today's libraries offer fun programs aimed specifically at our younger generation. They help make learning fun.
Warwick NY Libraries - Albert Wisner Library
Located at 1 McFarland Drive, the Albert Wisner Public Library strives to be a fun, safe place for the public to learn. The library is open seven days a week: 9am to 8pm Monday through Thursday, 9am to 7pm on Friday, 9am to 5pm on Saturday and 12pm to 4pm on Sunday. The TBR Reading Challenge focuses on a different theme each month. Choose a book based on this month's theme. Or, feel free to veer off on a subject that might be of more interest to you at the time. The goal remains the same: just relax and read.
Encourage a love of the arts by visiting the featured exhibits in the Community Room and Gallery. Currently, David Thelemaque's works hang on the library's walls. The library also offers workshops, readings, live theater performances, movies, cooking classes and so much more. Sign your tween or teen up for the Harry Potter Lock-Up on March 4th. Join the Tween Movie Club. Don't miss the Preschool Fair on March 4th. Representatives from several local Warwick day care and preschool facilities will be on hand to answer all your questions. Keep current on what's happening at the Albert Wisner Library by visiting their events page. Visit often. Otherwise, you might miss something fun.
Libraries Near Warwick NY
If you live just outside Warwick NY, you may want to pay a visit to a couple of other fine local libraries instead. The Florida Public Library at 4 Cohen Circle offers fun weekly programs for kids like Rhymetime and StoryTime. They provide instruction for teens to prepare them for their driver's permit test. Teen Time gives them a place to safely gather with their peers each week. Tweens and teens can also take a sign language class if they want. They can even take college courses for free via their online Coursera program. Visit the Florida Public Library website for more info.
You will find Greenwood Public Library at 79 Waterstone Rd in Greenwood Lake. They offer computer classes, Moms & Tots playgroups, a student art gallery and much, much more. Can't make it to the library, download an e-book. You can read a bedtime story right from your Smartphone, Kindle, iPad or other electronic reading device. Or, better yet, have your child read it to you! In fact, all three libraries I've talked about in this post offer downloadable e-books for your convenience. As you can see, there is so much more than meets the eye when it comes to Warwick NY libraries.
Reading encourages exploration, creativity and a thirst for knowledge in kids. Give them what they need. Take them to your local library.
