From November 1st – 22nd the Children’s Room along with our Story Time group will be having a donation drive for Food on Foot. Each time a donation is made the giver will receive a free appreciation prize.
“TN Food on Foot Foundation, Inc. was founded as a Christian-based nonprofit organization in April of 2007. Food on Foot provides nutritious food bags to the hungry, underprivileged and homeless of the Lakeway area on Wednesdays (during summer months) and Saturdays.
God has grown our ministry from providing weekly food bags to area school children to being able to supply the needy with monthly toiletry bags, school supplies, back-to-school backpacks, and special religious holiday items for children.
Food on Foot also distributes food bags to local elementary schools who have needy children.”
A pamphlet describing items requested is available at the Children’s Desk. Donations may be dropped off in the Children’s Room.
Story Time at the Library
The Children’s Library offers programming for young children on Wednesday mornings at 10:30 a.m. Every other Wednesday we have stories and crafts. On alternate Wednesdays we have music and movement. Activities take place in the Community Room.
Read to a Dog Program
Our Read to a Dog program for children to come and practice their reading skills is on Saturday mornings in the Children’s Room. Hope, a Labrador Retriever mix, is here from 10:30 a.m.-noon every other Saturday. Bertie, an Irish Wolfhound, is here from 11:00 a.m.-noon on alternate Saturdays. Have fun while improving your reading skills with one of our therapy dogs. If you can’t read yet, you can look at a picture book and explain in your own words what the book is about. The dogs love to listen to you! All children and their families are invited.
Family Fun Evenings
We have activities designed for everyone in your family to enjoy together every other Tuesday. Family Game Night is on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 4 p.m. Family Movie Night is on the 4th Tuesday of each month at 4 p.m. These events are held in the Community Room.
