Bring your preschooler to learn the basics of tech and coding at the library.
This spring you can introduce your preschooler to development- and age-appropriate technology through programs and resources that combine play with learning.
App Time is a digital storytime that features age-appropriate books and activity apps that reinforce early literacy concepts through a digital format. Parent/caregiver participation is required. App Time is at Davis Library on Wednesdays from February 12-26 at 11 a.m. App Time is a ticketed event. Tickets are free and will be handed out beginning 30 minutes prior to the program start time.
Tiny Techies introduces technology concepts to preschoolers as part of a storytime series. Books, flannels and activities will be used in each session to explore a different technology concept. Activities include Bee Bots, Duplos and Code-a-pillars, with past concepts featuring circuits, looping and perseverance. Tiny techies will be held at both Haggard Library and Davis Library throughout the spring. The full Tiny Techies schedule is available on the library events calendar.
Many of the activities that are available in Tiny Techies and App Time can be checked out in one of our STEAM Kits. The full list of STEAM Kits is available on our website, with kits from Preschool through Adults.
Code-a-Pillar inspires little learners to be big thinkers by encouraging kids to arrange segments into dozens of combinations, learning patterns and problem solving.
This kit comes with a Code-a-Pillar with 11 segments and two books: If You Give a Mouse a Cookie and Can You Make a Scary Face?
Build a maze, use the coding cards to program the sequence of steps, then watch the mouse race to the cheese! The mouse lights up, makes sounds, has two speeds and colorful buttons for programming.
This kit comes with the Code and Go Robot Mouse set and activity guide, coding and activity cards, and My First Coding Book.
You can browse our entire STEAM Kit collection by visiting our Library Catalog, and explore more preschool programs in our Engage brochure on pages 14-17.
