Events for Young People

The Library is a gateway to literacy, and introduces children to the attendant skills of storytelling
and listening. Our programs, for even the youngest patrons, develop an appreciation for those skills, as well as for the value of sharing. All the Library’s offerings, including art workshops, robotics classes, book clubs, and more, strive to provide the safe and fertile ground from which flights of imagination are launched and young lives are otherwise enriched. 

To register for our children’s programs, which are free but have limited enrollment,
please email us at hastingslibrary@gmail.com with your child’s name and grade.

Children attending library programs should have a caregiver present in the building if they are not yet in first grade. Caregivers of children in grades 1-4 attending library programs should leave a contact number if they leave the building.

Please give a 24-hour cancellation notice to allow others on the waiting list to attend.
