BioBlitz: County Wide Events

Nature isn’t a place you go, it’s where you live! Join us to explore the nature right here in Marinette County.

Want to get your family off the couch and out for a real life adventure? All ages are invited to Meet Miss Lara from the Stephenson Public Library and crew at Harmony Arboretum and/or Dave’s Falls to see what kind of plants and animals live right here in Marinette County. We will use the free SEEK  app by iNaturalist that is designed for kids and families to use to identify local species, sort of like the musical Shazam app, but for nature. Events are free and open to all ages, but preregistration is needed.

Register for either event or both by calling the Stephenson Public Library at 715.732.7570.

You may wonder about the benefits of reading to your baby. Believe it or not, by the time babies reach their first birthday they will have learned all the sounds needed to speak their native language. Hearing words helps to build a rich network of words in a baby’s brain. Join us as we play, sing, read, and rhyme in ways that foster bonding and learning.

Marinette: Story Times

PRESCHOOL and ITSY BITSY STORY TIMES:

Join us on Tuesdays at 10:00 a.m. for Preschool Story Time, ages 3-6; or on Wednesday mornings at 11:00 a.m. for Itsy Bitsy Story Time, ages birth to 3. Siblings are welcome at both story times

Preschool Story Time offers an opportunity for your child to interact with others at their own level and for parents/caregivers to connect with others. This chance to socialize is paired with fun experiences with stories, songs, rhymes, and activities that are the building blocks of early literacy.

Itsy Bitsy Story Time focuses on offering children and their parent or caregiver a chance to experience songs, movement, and short stories together. Play time at the end offers everyone a chance to socialize and visit. The familiar pattern of story time helps children feel comfortable in this new environment.
