The various branches of the Madison Public Library offer a plethora of *free* events for families, tots, school agers and teens.

Sample activities:
  • Knitting Circle
  • Book Club discussions
  • Storytellers, magicians, singers
  • Arts and Crafts
  • Teens: DDR & Guitar Hero
  • Bad Poetry Night
  • Storytime for Toddlers & Preschoolers
One of my daughter's favorite activities is called Readers Theatre. For one hour, the children read practice, and then perform a play for their parents and friends. No memorization required. The next event for 8-12 year olds will be held on March 19th at the Alicia Ashman library.

Some classes require advance (easy) online registration.
