Summer is nearing its end – but the fun continues at Bridgewater Library with lots of exciting September programs!

Do you have an imaginary friend – or wish you had one?  Join us Wednesday Sept. 2nd as we share the Caldecott-winning book The Adventures of Beekle, the Unimaginary Friend then CYOF (Create Your Own Friend!) (Ages 4-9) 10 a.m. sign up HERE, 11:15 a.m. sign up HERE.


Teen Lock-In: Glow in the Dark (Grades 7-12) Friday, September 4th,  7:00 PM - 10:00 PM. Registration is required. Get locked in the library, play games, watch movies, eat delicious snacks, and make crafts. We'll dim the lights and wear glow in the dark attire!  Please note: No admittance after 7:15pm. Advance notice required if a teen must leave early.

Baby Times, Toddler Times, and Story Times
resume after Labor Day.

We request you only attend one age-appropriate each week  per child. For example, if you have a one-year-old and a four-year-old, you are welcome to attend both a Baby Time and a Storytime (You may bring both children to each program.) 

We want storytimes to be happy times and understand children have their ups and downs.  If your child is unhappy or very disruptive, please try taking them out of the story room for just a few minutes and then bringing them back in.  Sometimes everyone just needs a bit of a break or a chance to stretch their legs and lungs a bit! 

If your child has special needs or would do better in a quieter, slower-paced setting, consider also coming to our Sensory Friendly School Daze Singalong (All Ages) on Sept. 12th at 10 a.m.  Registration required. Celebrate a new school year with fun songs. A sensory friendly program for children in a judgment-free environment.
