April School Vacation Events

LEGO Free Play
Wollaston Branch
4/21, 4/22 and 4/23 - All open hours

Drop by the Wollaston branch and get a scoop of LEGO pieces to build with at the library. Build whatever you want, then toss them back for a new scoop. LEGO pieces will be available from opening to fifteen minutes before closing each open day this week. All pieces must be returned before you leave so they'll be available for others later. Please be aware these are regular LEGO, not DUPLO, and are not appropriate for younger children. 

Music Together Demo
Main Library Meeting Room
Tuesday, April 21st - 10:00 a.m.
Ages 0-5
Music Together is an internationally recognized early childhood music program for infants, toddlers, preschoolers, kindergarteners, and the adults who love them. First offered to the public in 1987, it pioneered the concept of a research-based, developmentally appropriate early childhood music curriculum that strongly emphasizes and facilitates adult involvement. Music Together classes are based on the recognition that all children are musical.

Camp Frozen Story Concert

Shipwreck Detective
Main Library 
Thursday, April 23rd - 10:00 a.m. to noon

All Ages
Did you know there's a wild ocean place just off the Massachusetts coast? Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary, 10 miles off the coast of Scituate, is home to an amazing array of wildlife and shipwrecks, some you have to dive deep to explore! Come explore the ocean floor and uncover the maritime secrets just off our shores. Become an ocean archaeologist, map a shipwreck, try on SCUBA diving gear, learn about the fish and marine life that inhabit the Sanctuary, or listen to a story. Come for the full two hours or stop in any time in between to try an activity or listen to a story. Whole families welcome!
