The Briggs Lawrence County Public Library fall schedule of weekly programs for young children and their caregivers begins Monday, Sept. 10, with Storytime at 11 a.m. at the Ironton library.
Briggsy, the library’s canine mascot says, “Join us for Storytime and Toddler Time. We’ll read funny picture books, learn some rhymes, dance to the music, and maybe play a game or two. Then we’ll make something really cool at craft time. Come on! Join the fun!”
The fall preschool weekly schedule is:
Storytime for ages 3 to 5
• Ironton at 11 a.m. Mondays • Proctorville at 11 a.m. Tuesdays • South Point at 11 a.m. Wednesdays • Chesapeake at 11 a.m. Thursdays • Symmes Valley at 3 p.m. Thursdays
Toddler Time for ages 2 and 3:
• Ironton at 11 a.m. Tuesdays
In addition to programs for young children, Briggs Library offers activities for elementary, middle and high school age students. These include craft and activity programs, book clubs, and the very popular Lego Club. Some of the upcoming activities are listed in the schedule below.
Everyone’s invited to hear the melodic sounds of the hammered dulcimer at a free concert at the South Point branch of Briggs Library at 3 p.m. Tuesday,
Sept. 11. Dewey Sanderson, professor emeritus at Marshall University, will perform on the hammered dulcimer, a stringed instrument, notable in that the strings are struck with spoon-shaped hammers instead of plucked.

September is National Library Card Sign-Up Month. Apply for a card for everyone in the family at any Briggs Library location. A picture I.D. and proof of address is required for adults. Custodial adults with a valid library card can apply for children under age 18.
