From November to March the environmentally focused education program for preschool aged children will be held at the downtown branch, according to Jodie Papandrea, manager of volunteer and guest services for Wellfield.

“We’re so grateful for the library to partner with us, otherwise we couldn’t hold it through the winter months,” she said.

The last library hosted program will be Tuesday, March 20 at 10 a.m.

Papandrea said the hour-long program uses stories, music and activities to teach children about the environment.

“We usually have a story, a craft or activity, hands on learning and a couple different activities,” she said.mkt-171215-sprouts-100
