New families are encouraged to visit the library anytime.  Many programs are held in the children’s room–parents find this a welcome connection to each other.

The Children’s Room is known for its very family friendly space.  Families use the space to play with puppets, read together in the rocking chair, and use the toys or play the piano.  Parents help or supervise their children on the computers.  Parents can check their email while their children look for books.

Storytime

Children’s Storytime for ages birth to 5 on Tuesday mornings at 10:00 a.m. and on Wednesday mornings at 10:30 a.m. A fantastic time to borrow books, enjoy stories, songs, fingerplays and rhymes!  With a “letter of the day” and a focus on one of the six early literacy skills, songs, crafts and the opportunity to meet new library friends!

**There will be no storytime on Tuesday December 26 and Wednesday December 27.**

 

January 12 – Friday 6:00 p.m.

Simon Brooks, storyteller

Save the date- beloved storyteller, Simon Brooks, will visit the Cobleigh Library for a special all-ages show. Free and open to all!

British storyteller, Simon Brooks was raised on stories and taken to the places where these stories began. Ancient hills, standing stones, and castles were Simon’s upbringing. As an acclaimed storyteller Simon Brooks has engaged and transfixed with his powerful performances all over New England. As a master storyteller, Simon has taught and performed at libraries, schools, colleges, festivals, camps and at museums!  With his bodhrán and stories, Simon combines the intensity of a solo performance with the intimacy of a face-to-face conversation whether on CD or live. People all over New England seek Simon for his storytelling. He is popular with kids, being so kid-like himself, and the twinkle in his eye has adults laughing, too. Like a one man show, comedian, storyteller, raconteur Simon is one of the most popular storytellers the Northeast has.
