Programs @ HBPL: Weeklies, Specials & No Child left Inside
Our No Child Left Inside Programs occur at least once a month. Too much time indoors with television, video games, computers and any of the technological devices available can be harm-ful to our children. The spirit of the nationwide “No Child left Inside Movement” aims to keep children connected to nature instead of developing a nature deficiency. It provides an environ-mental education and fosters the development of mindfulness. This movement evolved from the popularity of Richard Louv’s book Last Child in the Woods; Saving Our Children From Nature-Deficit Disorder published in 2005, and is subsequently supported by his book The Nature Princi-ple; Human Restoration and the End of Nature-Deficit Disorder published in 2011.
Meet us outside of the library for our No Child Left Inside Programs – get back to nature while bonding with your child. Places we visit: local parks, east end farms, art studios, yoga studios, museums, aquariums, beaches, wildlife refuges & sanctuaries.
