NORTH WEBSTER — The North Webster Community Public Library will host the following upcoming events:
A child is never too young to start them on the path of learning. At North Webster Community Public Library’s Lapsit Story Time, parents and their babies and toddlers have fun learning together. Exploring books with brief stories; singing simple songs with hand motions; and having fun playing with scarves, shakers, bells, and bubbles are part of each session. For ages birth to 36 months, Lapsit Story Time is held at 11 a.m. every Tuesday and Friday through April 27. It also gives parents an opportunity to socialize and network with each other. To sign up for Lapsit Story Time, contact the Youth Services Department.
Genealogists will have an opportunity to network at the library’s All Day Genealogy session Tuesday, March 6. Genealogists are encouraged to bring their laptops and share their website subscriptions and other resources with fellow genealogists. Sharing resources and research ideas may help you uncover new information to add to your family history. The library’s computers and free website subscriptions will also be available along with its collection of historic records, family and local histories, and how-to books. The doors open at 10 a.m. Drop in for a while or stay the whole day.
Looking for a way to relax and unwind? Try meditative drumming. Ladies Drum Circle meets at 6 p.m. on the first Wednesday each month and will be accepting new members at its March 7 session.
