Palisades Writers Workshop

Thursday, May 23, 2019, 7:00 pm

They say writing is a solitary task. That's true, but sometimes you need the energy of a warrior, the inspiration of a teacher and the input of thoughtful peers to keep working at it. If you have a piece of fiction or non-fiction in the works, or you’ve completed a draft, join O. Dada (Library Associate and Pushcart Prize winner) for a 10-week writing workshop starting January 24. We will meet on Thursdays from 7-8:30 p.m. in the Palisades Library conference room.

These 20 to 30 minute programs are full of books, songs and fun activities designed to help develop your child’s language skills and a love for books. It is a great time for very young children to socialize with others and be prepared to start school.

A story time experience for our youngest library users and their caregivers, these 20-to-30-minute story times introduce books, songs, rhymes, tickles and bounces developmentally appropriate for children from birth to when they start walking.  Baby Lap Time is a wonderful way to introduce your child to the joys of reading in a positive and fun atmosphere. This story time is designed so the baby will be on their caregiver's lap and the grownup is actively involved in the program. It is recommended that each child have an adult with them.
