Children’s Programs

Children’s Program Chairs, Jodi Perrone and Jan Cronin have been working on events for the upcoming year: Mad Science in September, a special event during Lights of Love in December, Sunset Playhouse in February, and a Poetry and Pizza Party in April.

Mad Science will demonstrate the “Marvels of Motion” on September 29 at 10:30 am in the Community Room at the Elm Grove Library. This is an engaging show that focuses on Physics.  Experience the power of gravity, centrifugal force, inertia, and much more.  Some of you may remember the Sunset’s performance of Caps for Sale and how much fun it was to be at that performance.  Sunset is coming back and this year they will perform Song and Dance Man on February 2, 2019.  Be sure to make a note of this as it will be a delightful event. The time will be 10:30 am.

On Sunday, December 2, during the Lights of Love celebration, there will be a fun activity for children and their parents in the lower level of the Library.

In April we will celebrate Poetry Month with pizza and an interactive poetry event.

The programs are designed with children in mind but can be enjoyed by people of all ages.  Hope you will join us at the Library.

Chimney Sweep from Mary Poppins charms children and their parents

at the Elm Grove Library

Fun, fun, and more fun is what happened when Erika brought Bert from the Mary Poppins show, which is now playing at the Sunset Theater to the Elm Grove Library on October 13.  The children were spellbound as Erika read a section from P. L. Travis’ book Mary Poppins Comes Back.  Next there was singing with Bert, followed by making and flying a kite, singing and walking around the chimney, and last dressing up as a chimney sweep and having your picture taken with Bert.  It was an hour of entertainment at its best.

Mary Poppins is currently playing at Sunset Playhouse in Elm Grove until November 3.  Check their website for details.
