SLCL is rolling out several new programs for kids in 2014 with an emphasis on reading, science and creativity. Budding Artists teaches preschoolers there's no wrong way to create art-focusing on the process of making art, rather than the finished product. Discovery Club will feature projects, experiments and activities for grade-schoolers, helping them navigate through the sciences. Read & Play kits will be available at all 20 SLCL locations and will offer hands-on activities for parents and toddlers to enjoy in the library. Kits will feature activities that help develop motor skills, promote letter and number recognition, and encourage problem solving abilities.
