It is cold and blustery outside. Come in to the Madison County Public Library to warm up with some fun February activities. Children's programs start the first week of February. There are free programs for kids of all ages.

Tuesdays are for Teens. There are teen activities from 3-5 PM each week. On the 3rd and 17th of February, teens can come to the teen room and play video games. We will bring the Guitar Hero and they can show off their guitar skills. On the 10th of February we will make yarn or bead Nearikas for Valentine's Day. This is a traditional Mexican/Native American craft in which yarn or beads are used to create patterns. The Teen Advisory Group will meet on the 24th of February. This is a new group where teens can discuss books, music, and movies and help us choose materials for the library. Pizza and drinks are provided.

Babes and Tots meet on Wednesdays at 10:30 AM. We read short stories, play lap games, do finger plays, sing songs, and have the opportunity for baby and toddler social play. The recommended ages are birth to 3. Babes and Tots programs are 30-45 minutes long.

The elementary age crowd has fun every Thursday from 3-5 PM. On the 5th we are having a scavenger hunt and snacks to celebrate the book Coraline that is being released as a movie in theatres on Friday. On February 12th we are having a birthday party for Abraham Lincoln. Kids will get to play early American games and do early American activities. We will be making fuse bead art on February 19th.
