The Evanston Library hosts a fun Parent/Child Playtime on Saturdays this fall from 9/6-10/4 from 10-11:15. It's for children 1-3 years old and their parents/caregivers to play in one of their big rooms with tons of toys, books, art projects, and a circle song time at the end. We had so much fun doing it with our daughter last fall, so I wanted to alert other parents this year.
Meet other moms, dads and kids in Evanston for play dates, to explore events in the area and have fun! It’s a great way to make new friends and find out about child-friendly activities in the area. All activities are organized and hosted by our members.
Throughout the year, we’ll have several play dates around Evanston hosted by members, as well as a few special events, such as holiday parties, Moms Night Out, and classes.
Members are encouraged to host events, by suggesting a meetup time and location that works for them, set the limit on # of attendees or children’s ages, and serve as the contact person. You can do this by emailing the group organizers and we’ll put it on the calendar or use the “Suggest a Meetup” button on the home page. Feel free to suggest a play date at your home, a park, the library, anywhere!
We also have a discussion board where you can ask questions or provide your wisdom to other moms, so make sure to click on “Track this Message Board” on the “Discussion” page to take advantage of that network.
Annual dues are $10 to cover the cost of hosting the group on meetup.com, and to subsidize costs for the larger special events. Most events are free or discounted.
We look forward to seeing you at some of our meetups!
