Story times have resumed at Pierce County Libraries. Every library has multiple story time events this week. Select the date you want on the calendar and find a story session at a library near you! Note that other PCL library links in this post are pdf flyers. Story times are also back in session at Tacoma Public Libraries. Scroll down to find the date of interest. I don’t list these separately due to space issues.
The Pt.Defiance Zoo is back on its regular schedule and open every day. New! Polar Bear talks every day at 12:00.
Special springtime activities at the Children’s Museum of Tacoma. 10AM-5PM; Included with admission. You can try and score a Play Pass from your library to go for free.
Mountain climbing stories at the Puyallup Public Library 7-8PM Hear stories about some of the first climbers to summit Mt.Rainier. Not a children’s event, but I think it would be appropriate for your older youngsters with an interest. This event will also be at libraries in the Pierce County System in coming weeks.
Wee Ones Weekly 9:30-11:00-Special program for toddlers and preschoolers at The Children’s Museum of Tacoma. 7.00 per child plus museum admission (get the play pass from your library to score free admission). This event is also on Wednesdays.
It’s 1.00 day at the Starplex in Federal Way. Catch Tron, Yogi Bear 3-D, Tangled (2-D Or 3-D), Narnia in 3-D, and the Green Hornet and the latest Harry Potter. Note that the last two are PG-13. Also, there is a small up charge for 3-D movies . I haven’t seen any of these. If you have any thoughts on them, feel free to leave a comment. Reader Keri says Narnia is excellent but might be too intense for young children. I tend to agree based on what I remember about the first one, although I can’t wait to start the books with our boys.
