Come to Story Time, a fun early literacy program for kids 5 and under. Join us for interactive stories, songs, rhymes, and crafts. The early literacy practices featured each week help build a foundation for the lifelong love of reading and learning. For parents and caregivers, Story Time offers an opportunity to experience early literacy strategies in action, discover great books and resources for home use, and socialize with other parents afterward. Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday sessions all share a theme with something new and exciting each week. Sign-up is not required. Story Time is held Tuesdays at 5:30 p.m., and Wednesdays and Fridays at 10:45 a.m. in the Staggs Community Room. May dates are May 11, 12, 14, 18, 19, 21, 25, 26, and 28. For more information, please contact Children’s Coordinator Baillie Pretzer at 936-291-5910.

 Bubbles, rhymes, and books --oh my! You won’t want to miss the return of Mother Goose Lapsit at the Huntsville Public Library. This program is a storytime designed for children 2 years or under. Enjoy this early literacy initiative at 10:45 a.m. Mondays in the Rex Children’s Room. Sign-up is not required. May dates are May 10, 17, and 24. For more information, please contact Children’s Coordinator Baillie Pretzer at 936-291-5910. 

Tell your friends -- Sittercise is returning to the Huntsville Public Library! Everybody’s favorite exercise program is being offered from 10 to 11 a.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the Huntsville Public Library in conjunction with Huntsville Memorial Hospital. Classes begin Tuesday, May 11. Sittercise is designed to help those who are aging and/or dealing with chronic illnesses. Sittercise focuses on strength, balance, coordination, flexibility, endurance, and overall improved function. Please consult your doctor before starting any new exercise program. Liability waivers are required to participate and are available from the instructor. The class is free and open to adults ages 18 and older. Class is limited to 25 so social distancing can be maintained. Please contact Adult Services Coordinator Mary Kokot at 936-291-5471 for additional information.

 Be part of the Book Club at the Huntsville Public Library. All interested persons are welcome to join in the virtual fun from 10:30 to 11:45 a.m. on May 13 via Zoom. In this meeting, participants will discuss Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates, which earned a National Book Award. Book Clubs are an excellent way to enjoy books, challenge one’s mind, and socialize with other book lovers! They also encourage one to read more or read books one might not normally choose. We have fun reading a wide variety of books, making friends, meeting like-minded people, and stimulating the brain cells! Please contact Adult Services Coordinator Mary Kokot, at 936-291-5471 for additional information or visit myhuntsvillelibrary.com to preview upcoming months’ selections.
