Hands on Fun at the Library
FOR THE ANTIGO TIMES
If you are looking for a fun way to engage in fun, free indoor activities with your children during these cold winter months, the Antigo Public Library has started a new service to help.
Youth services librarian Ada Demlow has created a notebook full of activities families can choose to do during their library visits. More than 20 activities are available and include floor puzzles, several kinds of building block sets, games, arts and crafts and more.
“Our goal is to make our children’s activities flexible and available whenever the library is open, rather than just when a specific program is being held,” said Demlow. “Children need times for open-ended exploration and these activities help build confidence, creativity, problem-solving and social skills while also strengthening fine motor skills,” she added.
To participate, just come into the library and browse the binder displayed on our Reading Castle. Our youth services librarian or front desk staff will bring the materials you request. You can enjoy them for as long as you are at the library and simply bring them back to us when you are finished.
