The Norwood Public Library is excited to offer both in-person and online programming this summer. This summer’s theme, “Tails and Tales,” explores the animal kingdom in fiction and nonfiction. Our programs are free and open to children of all abilities. The fun begins July 1st!
Weekly early literacy storytimes will be held in the library gazebo and online on our Facebook page. Join us for stories, poems, rhymes, and crafts. We’ll learn about a variety of animals during this weekly program.
Teen Tuesdays will be held at 7pm in July at the library. Activities include an animal origami workshop, animal manga, an escape room, and a movie night. Teens are also invited to a special Film Workshop with Director Meg MacDonald on Saturday, July 31st from 12-2pm.

Local artist Kris Rozelle is once again teaming up with Norwood Public Library to offer an interactive art program, Art and Tails Around the World, for children ages 5 & up.
