New York Public Library's Weekend Programming
Are you looking for a fun and engaging way to spend your weekend doing something educational and helpful for your child? Visit the New York Public Library. Along with the well-programmed events throughout the year, we believe a visit to the library is always in your child’s best interest.
As a professional tutor who works with children starting at age 4, parents often ask me how they can help enhance their children’s education. One of the simplest and best things you can do — regardless of your child’s age — is read to them, have them read to you, and discuss what you are reading. Although the age of radio often seems behind us in an urban setting, listening to aural programs (with or without visuals) is also a wonderful way to spark discussion, work on aural listening skills and memory, inference reasoning, formulating questions and making predictions.
Care to make the most of your experience? Bring your children along while you go to check out a book or explore the map room. Through your interests expose them to new things. Parents actually do a disservice for their children if they only present precise age-curated experiences. I encourage the entire family to visit the NYPL and find something that each and everyone will love!
