February After School Programs at the Yankton Community Library

Thursday, February 25th 2016 - 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm
at Yankton Community Library
515 Walnut Street

Plans are in place for February’s Thursday after school programs at the Yankton Community Library.  Craft day is the first Thursday of the month. The February 4 session offers a variety of projects around the theme of hearts including paper weaving, making a mobile, and putting together a love bug.

Our movie on February 25, the fourth Thursday, is Paddington.  It is 95 minutes long and rated PG.

Crafts, LEGOs, and Science Club after school programs run from 3:45-4:45 p.m. in the meeting room at the library, 515 Walnut Street.  Movies begin promptly at 3:30 p.m.  Registration is not necessary for any of these programs.

In addition to Thursday programs, there is Wii gaming every Friday afternoon from 3:30-4:30 p.m.

Special activities in February include Take Your Child to the Library Day.  On Saturday, February 6, parents are invited to bring children in any time during our regular hours of 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.  The children can pick up The Library Game at the desk, complete the activities, and earn a treat.

A new session of LEGO Robotics begins on Monday, February 22, and runs for five weeks.  Due to a set number of robotics kits, this free activity is limited to 24 participants and registration is required.  Children must be at least 8 years old and should plan to come to all five sessions.  Children who attended LEGO Robotics in the summer or fall of 2015 should not register, as this is very similar.

If you have questions about any of these activities, contact the library at 605-668-5275 or e-mail jmoore@cityofyankton.org.
