At 4 p.m., the weekly Traditional Tuesday Storytime will entertain children ages 3 ½-5 with stories and rhymes created specifically for the age group.
At 6:30 p.m., the first session in the Advanced Chess series of lessons for players in grades 1 and up begins. Registration is required on the library website www.scarsdalelibrary.org.
Mother Goose for Pre-Walkers, a program of rhymes, songs and stories for infants who are not yet walking will be held Friday, January 9, at 9:30 a.m. Reservations are not required.
On Saturday, January 10, at 11 a.m., Yoga-A-Go-Go, a program for children with special needs, will return. Yoga can not only aid in teaching a child focus and balance but, even more importantly, self-acceptance and confidence. Traditional yoga poses and practices have been modified into a playful, non-judgmental format for fun and relaxation. Wheelchairs can be accommodated.
“Wag Your Tale,” the monthly program when dogs lend their ears to young readers who want to practice reading out loud will be held on later on Saturday at 3 p.m. Although dogs aren’t good conversationalists, they make great listeners. Children who are tentative about their reading skills can gain confidence by reading – not to an adult, who may be over-prone to correct, but to an uncritical canine companion. The Good Dog Foundation, a Brooklyn-based nonprofit organization, provides the certified, registered therapy dogs. Registration is required on the library’s website.
