SERVICES FOR CHILDREN AND YOUNG ADULTS
The Simpson Library offers a variety of books and programs for children and young adults.
Check out the fun MDI High School "All About Those Books" video.
Story Hour for Children
Simpson Memorial offers a Story Hour at 10:00 am on the second Saturday of each month from September to April. In May it is the third Saturday of the Month. For summer programs, see the Summer Read area.
Lap Story Time for Babies and Toddlers
The Simpson Memorial Library is offering a monthly 30-minute program for babies and toddlers up to three years of age on the third Tuesday of each month at 11:30 am.
At Lap Story Time, parents or caregivers hold their infant or toddlers in their lap while participating in the program.
Research has shown that children find it easier to read words they have already heard, so short stories, rhymes, music and puppets will be part of the program. Toddlers are encouraged to bring a doll or stuffed animal to hold in their lap. This will help them participate in the program.
The last ten minutes of the program are for adults to have time to visit and time for play for the little ones.
This is a free program for children in Carmel and surrounding towns.
