Starting Tuesday, January 16, the Keene Public Library will be offering Crazy 8s Math Club after school for Kindergarten through second-grade students. Each week for eight weeks at 4 p.m., participants will build stuff, run and jump, make music, make a mess and more! Children will experience fun mathematical activities that will both entertain and educate. Activities include Glow-in-the-Dark Geometry, Bouncy Dice, and Toilet Paper Olympics. Join us for eight weeks of fun! These weekly events provide an opportunity for children to interact with their peers while learning basic math skills. The Crazy 8s Math Club will start January 16 and continue through March 6. Programs will be from 4 p.m. until 5 p.m. Sign up for the series on our online calendar.
The Crazy 8s Math Clubs is a project of the Keene Public Library and Bedtime Math. Bedtime Math launched in February 2012, serving up wacky nightly math problems on topics kids love, from flamingos to frogs to roller coasters. The playful, zany stories entertain both kids and their parents – and introduce math in a way that gets kids hooked fast. Since our start, we've garnered more than 50,000 loyal fans of our email and Facebook page and nearly 400,000 unique visitors to our website, earning us coverage in TIME Magazine, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, NPR, and others.
Although all Keene Public Library programs are free and open to the public, space is limited and registration is required for the Crazy 8s Math Clubs. To register for the Crazy 8s Math Club or for further information about family and youth programs at the Keene Public Library, call 603-352-0157.
