ImagineIF Libraries’ Youth Services staff are excited to unveil new fall programming for kids and teens.
The library continues to offer early literacy classes for babies, toddlers, and preschoolers, and STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) activities and clubs created for school-aged children and teens at all locations. These programs offer educational activities and inviting spaces for kids and teens after school.
For school-aged children, ImagineIF has created after school activities at all locations, including LEGO Club, Game Day, and STEAM Space. In addition, a new program called Sensory Play Saturday will launch this fall at the Kalispell location on one Saturday a month. Kids must be accompanied by an adult. For detailed information, including dates and times of each program, go to: imagineiflibraries.org/education/kids/.
ImagineIF is also bringing back popular teen programming, as well as brand-new programs designed for sixth-12th graders. LVL-Up and Teen Fandom will both return to the Kalispell Teen Zone this fall. Switch Days, when the Nintendo Switch is set up in Teen Zone, is also back at Kalispell and Columbia Falls locations. New this fall is Teen Space on Fridays at ImagineIF Columbia Falls, Anime at Dusk, a viewing of anime on the big screen, and the Super Smash Bros Ultimate Tournament, where teens battle it out on the Nintendo Switch tournament style.
