West End news for Sept. 27

Children’s programs

The Western Pocono Community Library Children’s Department now hosts two new programs. On the first and third Monday of the month at 1 p.m. the library will hold a program titled Books and Toys. This program is for children from baby to age 3. During Books and Toys the children will hear a story and then bring that story to life with toys provided.

On the second and fourth Monday of the month at 1 p.m. the library will host a Block Party for children ages 3 to 6 years old. A block party is a Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics program for young children, which provides children and parents the opportunity to explore block play and imaginative play.
