Although it is sometimes overlooked, art education is very important for young children. In addition to broadening your child's educational horizons, art helps with brain development and contributes to success in other subjects, such as math, reading, and science.
Here is what you can find at your library:
Let your child's creativity flow with active projects for the growing artist.
Let music brighten your day. Play, dance, and sing along to your favorite tunes.
Get kids excited about creating their own works of art through stories.
Feel the beat and get in the rhythm with stories about music.
