When you have kids and move to a new community, starting school is a way to instantly meet potential new friends and other families.  However, what about when you move with younger children, who haven’t started school yet?  In order to help your child meet new friends and connect with other families, you may have to work a little harder to engage with your new community.  Lake Travis Community Library offers a wide range of free programming for children of all ages, including younger children.  Every Friday at 10:00 AM there is a storytime for all ages.  Younger children (aged 2-3) can attend “Tales for Tots” on Tuesdays at 10:30 AM.  (Whew that was a lot of alliteration!)  This storytime involves finger plays, flannel board stories and songs!  Slightly older kids (aged 4-6) can attend “Bookaneers” on Mondays at 10:30 AM, where in addition to stories, songs, finger plays, and poems, they can participate in arts and crafts.  The youngest little ones (ages 3-24 months) can enjoy “Book Babies” on Wednesdays at 10:30 AM, where they can bounce, sing and play with others and their parents!  There is plenty of after-school programming as well.  Check out the Children’s Programs at this site:  http://www.laketravislibrary.org/childrens_prog.htm
