PROGRAMS & EVENTS


Our Lillian Dixie Morton Children’s Library is a sunny, active community space that welcomes all as it quietly (or not so quietly) works to enrich and transform lives. Here children, parents and grandparents, teachers and Cape visitors alike will discover:  
  • a thriving collection of the best books and media for children and teens
  • a Makerspace where children ages 6 and up can experiment, problem-solve, and create with Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, and Art materials
  • programs that encourage young people to come together, engage in real-world projects, and create and share content    
  • convenient “on-demand” programs for small groups; and traditional and project-based StoryTimes for preschoolers  
  • Informal 1-on-1 opportunities that help children and teens develop and share their passion for reading, learning and creating
  • and last but not least, our ever-popular doll house and wooden train table!

PRESCHOOL PROGRAMS


SATURDAY STEM STORYTIMES: 10:00 -- children ages 3-6 gather together to hear a few stories, and do hands-on STEM (Science Technology Engineering Mathematics) activities and a simple craft. For children, STEM StoryTimes are a time for good 21st century learning and play. Registration required. 

NEW on WEDNESDAY MORNINGS!  TORY's STORYTIME: 10:00 -- a drop-in playgroup/storytime filled with music, movement and of course books. For ages 0 - up to 3 years. 

For parents, StoryTimes are an opportunity to meet other parents, and/or talk with a librarian about good children’s books. 

Always Available: Are you part of a preschool playgroup, but find that our regular StoryTime hours don’t fit into your schedule?  Get 5 or more little ones together, and contact us to schedule a special StoryTime for your group.


SCHOOL-AGE PROGRAMS
We’re making project-based learning the focus of our expanded literacy programming for school-age children. In future programs, every child will be able to build on his/her interests while enjoying books, media, and technology. 

Check our Events Calendar regularly for Makerspace Club and Gaming Club activities happening on weekends and during half and full-days off from school.
