Library Spotlight Series: Worcester Public Library-Frances Perkins Branch

Throughout the fall and winter of 2019-2020, WCKC will be highlighting Central MA public libraries to find out all the goods! For each new library we visit, we’ll report back on questions like: What makes this library extra special? What fall programs can you expect? What passes does this library offer?

We start our series in Worcester at Frances Perkins Branch on West Boylston Street. We chose this branch to start with because it is near and dear to our family. This was the first library we visited as a family many years ago.

Regular events:

  • Most Monday Mornings: Family Storytime. Explore themes through rhymes, stories, books and crafts.
  • Last Monday Morning of the month: Sensory Play. An interactive program for children 0-5. Explore different textures, substances and tools. They have moon sand, colored rice, toys and more!
  • Tuesday Afternoons: Lego “n” More Constructive Play. Kids ages 4-12 enjoy an open-ended constructive playtime using Legos, Lincoln Logs, Tinker Toys, and trains!

You will also find movies, live presentations, holiday events, crafts and more on their schedule. You will see these listed on the WCKC calendar of events or directly on the library website.
