Kids Programs

Group activities and independant play are great ways to engage with your child as they learn to read, socialize, and interact with the library. Every month the VMPL offers a collection of events designed specifically with literacy in mind. 

Please Note: Registration will be required for all activities and events moving forward. In addition to helping our staff prepare fiscally responsible supplies, snacks, and prizes, our new online registration forms are the permission slips the library needs to ensure parents approve.
