Cradle to Crayons at Providence Public Library (downtown Providence)

  • Providence Public Library

    150 Empire St, Providence, RI (map)

    41.822067 -71.416740

  • Walk in the entrance on Empire, turn right, head straight to the Chace Children's Library
  • For 1-3 year olds (though I've seen happy infants there as well!)

    From the PPL Website: "This program combines time for play and socialization with a story time that includes movement, songs, finger plays and wonderful children’s literature."

    This hour, hosted by the Ann at the library, is one of the most well-attended parent events in the Providence area...and for good reason.  Just the right balance of open play with toys, cars, trains, play-doh, blocks etc. for about 40 minutes, followed by cleanup and a 15 minute story, song, and movement program.  

    I've been going for a few weeks now and have met some great dads and moms so I figured why not add this as a Meetup!

    I plan on going most weeks and will comment if I can't, but will leave it on the group calendar either way.  There are always a bunch of parents and kids there.

    There are also programs at 9:30 and 10:30 on Tuesdays, but I can't make those so I'll keep this one as the "official" Meetup.  Note:  You can come at any time after 9:30, and there is a 10:30 program on Fridays as well.  

    Also a great opportunity to check out and return books and other kid (and adult) stuff at the library.

    Great video of the program on the PPL website here: http://www.provlib.org/news/ppl-cradle-crayons-program

    Hope to see you soon!
