Paint, paint, and more paint!

Are you planning to join us for Play & Learn on February 18? Be sure to wear your purple Play & Learn t-shirt or clothes that you don't mind getting dirty. We'll be exploring and using child-safe paint in many different ways to help build writing skills and get our children ready to read.

Our next Play & Learn series will not begin until January 21 at Woodlawn Lake Park. But, there are plenty of fun activities for you and your family at each of the San Antonio Public Library's locations. Find out when and where you can enjoy crafts, music, story time, and other special events by visiting the SAPL events calendar.

You can filter the calendar by event type, age group and location! Once you have found the events you would like to attend, you can set up a reminder or add it to your personal calendar using the action links at the bottom of the listing.

One more visit to Millers Pond

Tomorrow at 9:30 will be our last Play & Learn of 2015! If you haven't had a chance to join us under the pavilion at Millers Pond, here are a few reasons you might want to make the trip:

  1. Sunny and cool weather in the forecast. Wearing a light jacket or sweater would be wise.
  2. Ducks! When you and your child aren't busy with the play dough, blocks or other activities, the ducks provide plenty of opportunities for observation. But, please, don't feed them. This article from Audubon explains why.
  3. Fun early literacy interactions: We'll have books and activities as usual for you and your child to enjoy together while building pre-reading skills. Plus, you might make some new friends.

If you aren't able to go to Millers Pond tomorrow, please consider joining us at the Woodlawn Community Room, adjacent to Woodlawn Gym, beginning January 21, 2016.
