Many Carroll Gardens residents are well aware that the library has much more to offer than books. The Carroll Gardens branch in fact, has some unique and valuable weekly programs.
Especially for children, but also for adults.
Children’s programs include free movies (usually on the fourth Wednesday of each month; next showing Oct 27th; call on the Monday before to find out what movie might be showing), “story craft” for children 4 and up which involves listening to a story and then doing arts/crafts about the story, “arts and crafts” time every Wednesday, a bi-lingual story time for kids 3-8, and the RIF program which allows children to earn books by reading.
There are also all kinds of book, story, and reading related programs for young kids, including Story Play which combines stories and toys for toddlers to 5 year olds on Thursdays, Movies and Play Time, and a toddler oriented RIF book-earning program.
On October 29th is a Halloween costume party for kids with stories, activities and more.
But the library isn’t just for kids of course, there are all kinds of programs for adults too, including a Chess Club which includes instruction from National Chess Master Manuel Ugarte. The Chess club meets every Wednesday at 6pm.
Also for adults, an English Conversation group just started up on October 5th and will continue to meet at 3pm on Tuesdays.
