Our "Born to Read" Program
We love babies and we welcome them, and their parents, to the Library!
When a Windham mother gives birth in New Hampshire, the Windham Town Clerk notifies us. We send out a postcard to the parents with an invitation to visit the Library and to receive a special gift. As you would expect, the gift includes a Nesmith Library bookbag, a board book, and lists of titles recommended for babies and toddlers!
For children ages 18 months to 3 years
Toddler Time is a drop-in program for children ages 18 months to 3 years accompanied by a parent or other adult. This program features books, songs, and movement activities to help develop your child’s language and socialization skills. Toddler Time is open to Nesmith Library patrons.
Toddler Time meets on Monday mornings at 9:30 am and 10:30 am.
Toddler Time lasts approximately 20-25 minutes with 30 minutes following the session for parent/child social interaction and play.
Parents are encouraged to participate with their child, and are asked to limit personal conversations until the 30 minute social period. The more you engage in Toddler Time with your child, the more attentive he/she will be.
Siblings are welcome to attend the toddler session; however, siblings cannot be left unattended in the library while a parent is in Toddler Time.
Toddler Time is for Nesmith Library card holders.
When Windham schools are closed or have a delayed opening due to weather conditions, both sessions of Toddler time will be cancelled.
The following dates have been scheduled for Toddler Time:
March 6th, 13th, 20th, 27th,
April 3rd, 10th, 17th,
* Please note that we do not meet on April 24th.
