Be sure to checkout your local library for fun and educational children’s programming and a myriad of other resources. Here is a list of the public libraries in New Hampshire. If your town library does not offer much in terms of children’s programming I suggest contacting the libraries in neighboring towns. Neighboring libraries often welcome my family to participate in their programming.
Below is a list of some of the things to look for in your local library:
- Children’s Story Hours
- Museum Passes: Many libraries offer passes to local museums, science centers and zoos. These passes often offer discounted admissions.
- College Scholarships
- Children’s Programming: Science, art, music and history programs are often offered throughout the school year and the summer. These programs are geared directly towards our kids and their interests.
- Children’s Summer Reading Programs: Many libraries will offer special programs during the summer months to keep children engaged and encourage them to continue reading throughout the summer.
- Book Fairs: Many libraries will host annual book sales at which they sell used books (at a very good price) with proceeds typically going to benefit the library.
