The Whitchurch-Stouffville Public Library is ready to make your month of May marvelous with fun and educational programs.

Tapping Little Toes is a half-hour program for children aged 2.5-4 and their caregivers that incorporates music into the entire session. The program will feature music-based books, rhymes, songs, puppets, musical instruments, and movement.

On Wednesday evenings beginning May 26, children can join Miss Anne as she reads a bedtime story from 7 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Facebook Live.

Get into your pyjamas, grab a snack and listen to a classic story being read aloud, chapter by chapter, over a number of weeks.  This program is for children aged 2-6, but all are welcome.

For older library patrons, the library is providing a writing workshop and sign language lessons.

On May 6 at 7 p.m., WSPL welcomes MJ Moores, a member of the Writers’ Community of York Region, who will be offering a free Zoom writing workshop.  The Mastering the First 2 Pages workshop is an intense look at what readers, agents and publishers look for in the first two pages of any story. Email [email protected] or at 905-642-7323 ext. 5237 to register.
