Why don’t I ever see the library dance class advertised?!?

For the past two years, Millis Dance Theater has been teaching a free ballet-based dance class for 2-4 year at the Millis Public Library.  The class is held on Thursday mornings with 2 start times, 10:30am, or 11:15am.  We run the 8 week class twice a year, fall and winter.

The class has been so popular that the  wait list from the previous session FILLS the next session!

If you are interested in having your child take the class, email Youth Services Librarian Rachel  at rsilverman@minlib.net with the name of your child (or children) and she will add you to the list of kids interested in the Winter 2018 Class.  If a space in the Fall 2017 class opens up, it will be offered to the children on the Winter list on a first come/first serve basis.

Summer Literacy Bingo for Preschoolers

Preschoolers can get into the Summer Reading action this year by playing the Millis Library Summer Literacy BINGO game!

Pick up or print a BINGO sheet at the library or print your own here

Instead of numbers, each square on our Summer Literacy BINGO sheet will have an activity that will emphasize not only sharing books, but other essential skills that will help prepare your preschooler to learn to read.   Complete 5 activities in a single row by AUGUST 31st to “BINGO.”  Everyone who BINGOs will be invited to a party in early September (date TBA) to celebrate their accomplishment!  Make sure you email Youth Services Librarian Rachel at rsilverman@minlib.net when you BINGO so she can email you an invitation to the party!

Summer Literacy BINGO was designed with preschoolers in mind, but if you’d like to use it with a slightly older or younger child, you are more than welcome!

If you have any questions please feel free to ask or email Rachel at rsilverman@minlib.net
