"At the moment that we persuade a child, any child, to cross that threshold, that magic threshold into a library, we change their lives forever, for the better. It's an enormous force for good." Barack Obama
The library hosts events and activities for children each week. Age ranges vary per event or activity, but all have a focus on literacy, learning, exploration, STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math), and fun!
Storytime: Every Tuesday and Friday morning from 10:00am-10:30am. This is for children birth through preschool and runs from October until the end of May.
STEAM activities: During the school year, these activities generally take place on early out days. They typically start around 1:30 and last for 45-60 minutes. The activities are designed for elementary aged students.
Twice a week, the library hosts Cards and Coffee in the morning allowing people from around the community to gather and visit with each other while playing a fun game of cards. This activity occurs on Tuesday and Friday mornings from 10:00am-noon.
The Stuart Public Library often holds special programs in collaboration with the PALS group or the Library Foundation. They are a one-time event with no repetition, unlike children's storytime or Cards and Coffee. The specialty events tend to be more adult oriented, but all ages are welcome.
