New Program in the Library
The Paso Robles City Library invites children, grades 1st through 6th, to participate in a new program beginning in January--Maker Mondays! The last Monday of every month at 4:00pm in the Library Story Room, children will experiment and explore the world around them through art, crafts, and experiments. According to Children’s Librarian Melissa Bailey, “Maker programs foster creativity, curiosity, and confidence in children and inspire them to share and try new ideas.”
Maker Mondays are scheduled for:
- January 30th
- February 27th
- March 27th
- April 24th
The program is free but limited to the first 30 participants. Tickets will be available at the Children’s Desk beginning at 3:30 pm the day of the program.
