ImagineIF launches new youth programming this spring

| April 6, 2022 12:00 AM

ImagineIF Libraries is launching new Youth Services programming this spring. The library now offers in-person Early Literacy classes, STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) activities for school-aged children, and teen programming at all locations.

Babies, toddlers and preschoolers are invited to come sing, dance, read and explore in fun, interactive classes that help them prepare for future learning success. Hands-on activities follow storytime. Classes are designed especially for children 0-5 and their grown-ups.

For school-aged children, ImagineIF offers monthly educational STEAM activities they can do at the library, encouraging them to explore, experiment and create. Activities take place from 3 to 6 p.m. and rotate by week at each library location.

For dates, times, activities and locations, for these children's programs go to: imagineiflibraries.org/education/kids.

Teen in-person programming for sixth to 12th graders has also returned to ImagineIF with two new programs: Teen Fandom and Scene. Create art and connect with other teens over all things pop culture at Teen Fandom, which takes place at the Kalispell branch the third Thursday of the month from 4:30 to 6 p.m.

Scene invites teens to stop by any library location to tinker, create and make using a self-directed activity kit. Teens can bring their friends or come solo and dig into the latest kit at the library. Dates vary each month by location. For more details about teen events go to: imagineiflibraries.org/education/teens.

For more information about all youth programming, pick up ImagineIF’s monthly calendar of events at any location or check the online events calendar at: imagineiflibraries.org/events/events-calendar.
