The Lexington Public Library has a variety of events at their many locations. With COVID the schedules have been reduced but things are starting to be scheduled again!
Destination Kindergarten is a multifaceted initiative designed to help children Read, Talk, Play, Write, and Sing – the key elements to early childhood education. Each Library location will feature hands-on activities and take-home Bingo Cards for children ages 0-5 to complete with their favorite adults. Families can return their completed bingo cards to earn a prize and receive another card to complete. Once a child has finished five bingo cards, they will be ready for Kindergarten.
Destination Kindergarten complements the Library’s rich youth programming, which will resume the week of September 13th with five weekly programs which align with the weekly Destination Kindergarten themes. Each branch will host one weekly program at 11:00am as outlined below, with the exception of Beaumont and Tates Creek Branches, which will alternate weekly. Activities will be held outdoors unless otherwise noted and will be cancelled in the event of rain/inclement weather. Guests are encouraged to wear facial coverings for the safety of all library customers. Events run 1 hour and you can drop in anytime between 11 am – Noon.
The schedule is as follows:
