Toddler storytime is at 11:00 a.m. followed by Preschool storytime at 11:30 a.m. Children are welcome to wear their costumes. We will share a few seasonal stories then trick-or-treat around the library and administration building.

 

Dare to be scared (kind of) at the Lakewood Library's Boo Bash on Wednesday, October 30th at 6:30 p.m. We will tell scary stories, make fun crafts, and enjoy some special snacks. This is an event for all ages. No tickets required. Wear your costumes and be ready for an evening of fun and ghoulish surprises.

Ever wonder what your favorite fuzzy friend does while you’re sleeping?  Children found out after attending a storytime and then leaving their special friend at the library to spend the night.  We took pictures of some of the silly things we caught them doing after the library was closed…

 

Can you "Moooo" as well as cow? Cow can certainly teach you how!

Zelda Anne spends some quality time surfing the web! What a tech-savvy monster!

Iza tries her best to reach her favorite snacks from the vending machine! Just a little higher, kitty!

 Julie Flower aka "Tiarra" dreams of Broadway. This kitty has her eyes and paws set on rocking the stage with her sweet dance moves!

Sparky has a talent for standing on one leg, but has decided to take a THRILLING ride on this fire truck!

To see more of the mischief your fuzzy friends got into, and meet some of their human friends, visit the library's flickr page!

Come have some Halloween Fun at the next Columbine Family Fun Night on October 8 at 6pm!

Saturday April 20th, The Conifer Story Time will have a special guest. Local author Joan Arent will visit the library and help me with story time at 11:30 am. Joan will be reading two of her books and have the kids doing some different games and activities associated with the books. 

Peek-a-Boo Who? inspires children to read and learn with guessing games, playing Peek-A-Boo, through noun awareness and word association.

The Bird Herd Goes to Bed is an enchanting story that helps children find comfort in going to sleep.

No tickets are necessary. If you have any questions please call the library at 303-235-JCPL (5275) and ask for Brian at Conifer Library.

"Even if you get nothing else accomplished today, you have done something wonderful for your baby by being here!"

This is how I often start Baby Time. It's 20 minutes of early literacy skills cleverly disguised as play for the 0-2 year-old crowd. Songs, rhymes, stories, scarves and bells are just part of the fun. We also learn how to share, put our toys away and communicate. Parents and caregivers not only bond with their children but get to share experiences and talk to other grown-ups!

Baby Time is my favorite time of day. Visit your Jeffco library for Baby Time and make it your favorite time as well! We hope to see you soon!
