Special Events & Concerts

Special events and concerts at the Library.

Please note this program is now full. Thank you for your interest. 

 

Join us for a special Parent-Child Mother Goose! Seniors from the Care Centre will be singing along with families in this special and unique partnership program.

The Parent-Child Mother Goose Program® is a fun group experience that introduces babies aged 0-12 months and their caregivers to the pleasure and power of using rhymes, songs and stories together.

Parents and caregivers gain skills and confidence that enable them to create positive family patterns during their children’s crucial early years. Infants benefit from enjoyable, healthy early experiences with language and communication.

Brought to you by the NVDPL, North Shore Community Resources,  in partnership with Lynn Valley Care Centre.
