Beer Bites: the Local Edition
The Capital District is home to 26 different breweries. Let’s celebrate the New Year with local brews and good food with another addition of Beer Bites. Bring a bottle of local brew and your favorite bar snack to share. We’ll drink, eat and compare our favorite brews. This event takes place Tuesday, Jan. 17, at 6:30 p.m. This is a 21+ program.
Every parent wants to do the best for their young child. And we all know the value of reading to kids. Storytime builds on that value.
• Children watch others become engaged in a storytime and learn from each other.
• They are exposed to a wide variety of authors and writing styles.
• They learn vital school readiness skills — sitting still for a period of time, how to pay attention to an adult other than a parent, how to take turns and how to be reasonably quiet.
Do you know a young child who could benefit? Point their caregiver to our calendar and look for Romp and Read (toddlers) Library Babies and Positively Preschool.
