Monthly Saturday Programs

Throughout the academic year, Tyson Library hosts several Saturday programs and activities. These monthly events are often scheduled (and themed) around upcoming holidays or the season, but not always! Activities like our 5th Saturday Cinema, Easter Program, and Breakfast with Santa are some examples.

We encourage our patrons to check back here on our website for more details about our Monthly Saturday Programs that are announced as the year goes on. Many of these events require pre-registration due to limited space.

Registration is required for our school-aged programs.

Fall 2023 registration forms are now available! Above is a downloadable form. Paper forms will be available at the check out desk at the end of July. Email Ms. Aly ( with any questions.

Tyson Travelers

The Tyson Travelers meet monthly to explore different countries, cultures, and time periods through crafts, foods, and games. Last year the travelers stamped their passports in Greece, France, and even in the United States Civil War Era. Sign up for this fun program to see where they’ll visit this year!

Miss Aly will lead a book club for students in kindergarten through 3rd grade. The group will meet twice a month to not only talk about the books they are reading, but also enjoy crafts, activities, and snacks based on the books and their characters!
