Upcoming Events


Story Seekers

11:00 AM

Calling all Story Seekers!  The Bradford Area Public Library invites families with children ages birth to 5 to participate in our Story Seekers program, every Monday and Friday at 11:00 am. We offer a variety of literacy activities that include reading, writing, talking, singing, and playing! A new story is offered each week with play experiences that encourage active learning and inspire the imagination. Children have opportunities to create their own stories using art materials, building blocks, dramatic play, and music and movement.

Throughout March, The Mind Body Connection program will encourage families with our youngest children to use their whole bodies as they begin their journey to learning. We will engage the families in various types of music/ movement (learning to keep a steady beat using a variety of instruments) as well as process art experiences.

Creative Share

3:30 PM

The Creative Share program is an opportunity for people to share their poems, songs or creative writing with others. The library is expanding its former Poetry Slam to include other forms of writing as well.


Chess Club

4:00 PM

Do you play chess? We now have a club that is just for you. Bob Ferguson of the American Chess School will facilitate this new club.



Art Club for kids

4:00 PM

The art club is for children in first through sixth grade. This month we will learn about the work of Raphael and his collaboration with Macantonio Raimondo, who produced engravings of Raphael’s famous prints. Children will create prints on their own using Styrofoam. They also will paint self-portraits on canvas and create wall art with tissue paper.

Evening Storytime

Don't forget to check out our evening story time! You are invited to join us for a light story and craft to spark your imagination before bed. The book for March 14th is Muncha, Muncha, Muncha by Candace Fleming, and the book for March 28th is Marigold Bakes A Cake by Mike Malbrough.
