Children's Drawing Workshops
Tuesdays from 4-5 PM
Community Room (lower level). Class often starts with a period of guessing and brainstorming ideas for the day's drawing. Knoth then leads children age 6 and up in "follow along" drawings. Knoth encourages adults to join in the drawing. Children 10 and under should be accompanied by an adult. The program, sponsored by Wendy & Keith Wellin, is free with all materials supplied, and hosted by Friends of Rockland Library.
Dial-A-Story is updated monthly by Ms. Jean.
This week’s story is “The Five Peas in the Pod”.
593-9000. Children enjoy these short, lively stories, especially before bedtime. This program is sponsored by the Rockland Kiwanis and by the Friends of Rockland Public Library.
