The Natchitoches Parish Library (NPL) has seen hundreds of children attend its Summer Reading Program performances over the past month. Your local library has hosted magicians, puppets and storytellers, and musicians at both branches, on the NPL’s front lawn, and even the Downtown Riverbank Stage. And don’t worry if you have not had the chance to catch a library show with your kids; the NPL still has weeks of performances to look forward to! Plus, you can still register your child to read for rewards until the program ends on August 31.
Next week, you will not want to miss Dinosaur Experience, with a walking, roaring T-Rex on June 30, at 10 AM (Riverbank) and 2 PM (NPL), and June 10, 10 AM (Riverbank) and 2 PM (Northeast Branch). The following weeks’ shows will be NSU’s comical improv group, Out On a Limb, followed by Animalogy, a wildlife program with real furry, feathery, scaly, and slimy friends.
The NPL also offers Family Story Time every Tuesday at 10:30 AM. And on Fridays through the end of July kids can catch Sprout! on the library’s front lawn, featuring a different developmental activity each week, along with free veggies from the City of Natchitoches Mobile Market and a sack lunch provided by the Natchitoches Lions Club.
Weekly classes and events for teens and adults are also offered each week.
