CHILDREN Here at Bushnell-Sage Library we understand children. They are naturally curious and learn through a variety of methods. We offer an array of opportunities to play, read, and become the successful learners they need to be, all in a playful, relaxing environment. Come hang out with us, or join one of our ongoing programs designed to pique their interest.
LEGO CONSTRUCTION ZONE meets in the Art room Tuesdays from 3:15 – 4:15 pm. This year we have complete sets of architecture and more to build with thanks to our wonderfully generous patrons and Friends of the Library.
CHESS CLUB meets Wednesdays from 3:15 – 4:15 pm during the school year. Stephen Greenspan is our chess club leader for this truly inter-generational club.
SING AND PLAY / STORY TIME Sponsored by South Berkshire Kids, the Sing and Play group meets on Thursdays from 10:00 – 11:00 am, during the school year. Come prepared to sing and dance with Kim at this free playgroup for caregivers and children 2 and up. We sing in a circle, we jump, wiggle, and spin to music of all kinds. Maracas shake! Sticks clack! Bells jingle! Balls roll! Parachutes fly! Fun abounds! Story time continues upstairs in the gazebo with Caitlin from 11:00-11:30.
HALF DAY PROGRAM We welcome students to come spend the rest of the “school” day at the library, 12-3. Registration required, space is limited.
TEENS Swamped, buried, slammed!!! You’re so busy we never see you anymore; or do you think you don’t need the library? Either way, we’re still here for you with a relaxing, safe, non-judgmental space for you to use the internet, check out our “Library of Things” or maybe even read and do homework.
A COZY CORNER … Just for you we have created a corner at the end of the Young Adult section for you to study, read, or check your social media.
CHESS CLUB The Chess Club meets on Wednesdays from 3:15 – 4:15 pm during the school year. Promotes flexible thinking, concentration, patience, problem solving and decisive action.
