Play, Dance, Make

Robot-o-thon CIO

The weather may be a little frightful, but these events are truly delightful!

These upcoming events give kiddos the chance to meet some new friends, dance the day away, and make something awesome.

Now through March 14 | 9:30-11:30am | Lussier Community Education Center

Come experience Anji Play! In this award-winning program, kids play, adults watch and learn and then everyone talks together about the play. This educational approach, rooted in children choosing their own play, was created in Anji County in China and Madison Public Library is a pilot site for developing an out-of-school Anji Play model. Messy clothes recommended. Open to all ages. 

*Note: this event takes place at the Lussier Community Education Center, 55 S. Gammon Rd
