The Library holds formal educational programs and workshops for our child and teen patrons on a regular basis, with the goal of providing supplemental education for those who need it and ensuring that no child in our community slips through the cracks of the school system. The programs below are limited in registration and may require a fee and regular time commitment; if you are interested in enrolling your child, please contact the Library to learn about availability and requirements!

Pre-K Preparation Class

Get your little ones ready for school with a fun, engaging Pre-K class designed to get them used to spending time with their peers in a learning environment before they begin to attend formal school! The program is open to children aged 4-5 years who are not yet in Kindergarten, and is held on weekday mornings from 10:30 AM until 12:00 PM.

Contact Erika Arbulu for more information or to register your child.

STEAM After-School Program

For those in grades 6 - 12, the Library offers a STEAM after-school program full of enriching activities and learning opportunities! Held Monday through Thursday from 3:00 PM until 6:00 PM, it includes robotics class for middle schoolers, exercise activities, art classes, and live on-the-spot tutoring and homework help.

Contact Erika Arbulu for more information or to register your child.

High School Media Lab Program

The Library has partnered with the For a Bright Future Foundation to provide free professional video filming and editing classes for teens, using the same equipment that the pros do! Learn about filming, audio and video editing, live broadcasting, and even acting and storyboarding. The program is open to teens aged 13-18 who have not yet graduated school.

Contact John McIntosh for more information or to register to attend.

Summer Camp

Each summer, the Library hosts a Reading Summer Camp to encourage our local kids to keep reading and learning even when school is not in session! Children go on field trips, participate in STEAM and arts & crafts activities, and, of course, have summer fun! Participating kids receive reading level testing at the beginning and end of the program.

This program is not yet open for this year; watch this space!

We are also grateful to the For a Bright Future Foundation for their support of our high school Media Lab and associated classes.
