Youth and Teens!

Hands-On Creative Writing


Are you a budding writer? Write poetry? Ever thought about writing and designing a graphic novel? Then we have you covered! On Oct. 3 from 3-5pm, this teen-centered, student-led writing course will help with the basics of short stories, poetry, narrative writing, and even graphic novels. For grades 6 - 9. Email Elise if you are interested or sign up here!

Dungeons & Dragons


We are thrilled to offer a beginner's adventure into D&D! Designed for grades 4 - 8, party members will create characters, learn the basics, and venture off into the Forgotten Realms. The party will meet Oct. 1, 8, 15, and 22 - please commit to all four weeks! The adventure can fall flat when your bard doesn't show up and you need someone to sing an ogre to sleep! Light snacks will be served and adventure over- served. Register here!!

Library Programs at NES!

In-Person
Storytimes are back!
Best for ages 0-2
Wednesdays, 10 - 11 am
As children acquire language skills and concepts, we strive to incorporate those skills and concepts into many fun topics and socially supportive lessons. While we do want our children to be exposed to literacy topics and concepts, it is also very important to understand the developmental milestones our children meet. In addition, we provide time for free play and exploration. This is a holistic approach to educating children in a safe, fun and engaging environment.
Storytime for children ages 2 to 5 years. 
Thursdays, 10 - 11 am
This is a fun storytime based around the love of books and leisure. Designed for children who are able to hold focus on a story (at least for a bit!) we will hear some wonderful stories both classic and contemporary, usually outside, weather permitting. This storytime will include an activity or craft, depending on the theme and general capacity of the group. Think of it as a flex session in that we will be adapting to the group and addressing age appropriate skills, interests, and abilities.
