Play. Explore. Investigate.

Sensational sensory fun awaits! Bring your little ones to the library to explore sensory learning. Sensory play is designed to stimulate a young child's senses—hearing, seeing, tasting, smelling, touching—and to create an early, natural introduction to the scientific processes as children play and investigate. Bottom line: kids have TONS of hands-on fun while strengthening important cognitive skills and fine and gross motor skills.

At each session, we will provide several exciting sensory stations for your child to explore while introducing you to early learning tools to benefit your child's development. Plus, we will provide a take-home project so you can continue the learning and fun beyond your visit! Things could get messy, so be sure to dress appropriately.

For ages 0–5. Just drop in! Space and take-home materials will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Questions? Call Nikki at 543-7675 ext. 2557 or e-mail nikki@bcplib.org. ***Please note: Sensory Stations are offered on the last...
