Matthews Library Programs

 The Matthews Public Library offers an array of programs for all age groups, including story times and summer programs and activities and a monthly book club.  For more information on the latter two programs, please visit their pages!

Puppet Theater

Come one, come all to Polka Dot City!  All are welcome at the library’s puppet show for toddlers and pre-schoolers–no registration required.  A show is put on the first Wednesday of each month at 10 a.m. in the library’s own professional puppet theater.  The months that have fifth Wednesdays also have another puppet show on the fifth Wednesday of the month.

The Children’s Story Hour for Toddlers and Pre-schoolers

The other Wednesdays of the month at 10 a.m. there will be a story followed by a craft for toddlers and pre-schoolers at the library.  The Children’s Story Hour runs all year long, even during the summers.  Children will enjoy stories, finger plays, crafts, and poems.  Everyone is welcome, and there is no registration required!

Smart Start Story Time

Sponsored by the Lebanon County Library System, these exciting story time classes for babies ages birth to two years old feature an interactive story time filled with games, songs and books.  A parent or caregiver must be present with children during class, and siblings are welcome!  These classes are free, no registration required, but space is limited and participation is on a first come, first serve basis.  This class will meet at Matthews Public Library Tuesdays in October and December 2016 and February 2017 at 10:00 a.m.
