February programs at the Sussex County Libraries
Newton NJ - The current session of winter storytimes will continue through February 23 at all six Sussex County Library locations. Lapsits are for the youngest children, ages 6 months through 2 years, and include silly songs and rhymes, simple stories and fingerplays. Read & Plays are targeted to families with multiple young children, with age-appropriate books and activities for ages 6 months through 4 years. Preschool Storytimes include more advanced stories and simple crafts to help children get ready for Kindergarten.
For older children the Sussex-Wantage Branch is hosting a Valentine Craft event at 10 a.m. on February 3. Children ages 8-12 are invited to make treasure boxes from clay with local artist, Sally Stansfield. The Main Library in Frankford will host Kids Can Cook! This hands-on program for children 8-10 meets on February 3 at 11 a.m. On February 10 children in grades one and up are invited to meetings of the American Girl Club at both the Louise Childs (10 a.m.) and Sussex-Wantage (2 p.m.) Branches.
