Dance Fitness for KIDS! Saturdays at 1:00

Call it dance. Call it exercise. When kids move to music, they call it fun! An activity session for boys and girls 6- to 12-years-old, they get the chance to be active and jam out to their favorite music.  We break down the steps, add games, activities and cultural exploration elements into the class structure. Dance Fitness helps develop a healthy lifestyle and incorporate fitness as a natural part of children’s lives by making fitness fun.

 

Weekend Gamers- All ages all day Saturdays and now Play Games Everyday After School! 

pic9Video games in a library?! Yes we have brand new and popular games in the library. Many of the games that we have here at the library are multiplayer games that encourage team work and leadership. Yes, you can play video games at home, however here at the library kids are given a chance to interact in person with others that share similar interest, these social skills are very important. With all that fun our kids don’t realize they are actually developing some very important learning strategies. Some games (especially Nintendo games) challenge kids on their reading, mathematics, and critical thinking skills. Also games are a great way to relieve stress.

“Play is the highest form of research”-Albert Einstein

What is there for teens on this small island of ours? Teen time at the library! Every Saturday afternoon, the Key West Library turns its attention to Teen Time. Yeah sounds lame but it’s fun. It’s a film club, book club, gaming club and craft club all rolled up into one. We use this time to relax, unwind, play games, and just have a great time with friends.
