JEFFERSON -- The Jefferson Public Library has planned the following events for this week.

In youth programming, storytime for children ages 1-5 will be held Wednesday, Feb. 6, at 10 a.m. It will include stories, songs and rhymes that are designed to help children develop the early literacy skills they need to be reading ready.

Library Night open house will take place Feb. 7 from 5:30-7:30 p.m.

Families are invited to Family Library Night, where they can get a library card, take a tour of the children’s book area, become familiar with English, Spanish and bilingual collections, enjoy books with their children and make a craft. They will have the opportunity to meet other families and hot chocolate will be available.

The drop-in Little Learning Workshop will be presented Feb. 8 and 23 from 10:30-11:30 a.m.

Early Literacy Workshop, for children ages 2-5, incorporates hands-on learning and play for young children and a grown-up to do together. This workshop is filled with sensory activities, play literacy and more. This month’s theme is animals. Each session will be the same so participants may choose the one that best suits their schedule.

Next week is the fifth week of the librarywide reading challenge. There is still time to pick up a bingo sheet for a chance to win various prizes.

The final set of clues in the library murder mystery, “Dying for Love,” will be available for pickup. Participants must submit the name of the killer to the library by 3 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 9.

In adult programming, a discussion will be held on the book “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks” Tuesday, Feb. 26, at 6 p.m.
