Did you know that the Fremont Library has three children’s book discussion groups? We currently have a group for 2nd and 3rd graders, Hooked on Books, a group for 4th-6th graders, called Between the Lines, and a 6th-8th grade group, called Tween Page Turners.

Each group meets once a month. Hooked on Books met just this past week and had a great turnout. We still have a few spots available for next month’s meeting.

If you are interested in signing up for the October discussion (October 12th at 4 pm), you will need to stop by the children’s desk to register and pick up a copy of the book.

Join us at our last preschool craft program in the Fukaya Rooms on Tuesday, August 9th at 1:30 pm!

We’ve had a lot of fun so far in our previous three craft days. We’ve made handprint sunflowers, paper plate turtles and hot air balloons mosaics.

All of the crafts are designed for preschoolers to make on their own, with a little assistance from an adult. The crafts help preschoolers practice cutting with scissors, using glue sticks, coloring with crayons, following directions and best of all, have fun with crafts!

Our last class for the summer is Tuesday, August 9th at 1:30 pm. Please stop by the Children’s Desk at 1:15 pm to pick up your free tickets for the program.

Preschool Crafts will continue in the fall, and will move back to its original day (fourth Wednesday of the month) at 1 pm.

Our monthly preschool crafts program will continue this summer! We will host four preschool crafts on TUESDAYS (not Wednesdays). Each of the four programs will feature a different craft activity meant for children ages 3-5 years old. A parent is expected to attend with their child, but we will not allow older siblings to attend as there will not be enough space. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

Tuesdays, June 28th, July 12th and 26th, and August 9th from 1:30 – 2pm.  We will pass out free tickets before each program, beginning at 1:15pm. Each child attending the program must have a ticket to attend. We have 50 spots in each program.

For more information, please contact the Children’s Desk at (510) 745-1421 or e-mail Mary Ayers at mcayers@aclibrary.org .
