Youth Services
Fall Programs 2021

To help keep families safe, we’re offering a variety of indoor, outdoor & virtual events this fall in Blackstone Youth Services! Whether you're ready to join us for live events or you prefer to keep things virtual, we have something for everyone this season! 

Please remember that all in-person Youth Services Events will require a mask & registration. A waiting list will open when each event is full. Know that signing up creates demand so once the waiting list is full we will work hard to change and/or add classes along the way.

Please be respectful of limited space & only sign up for events you're sure you can attend.  To sign up for any of the events below, follow our eventbrite page @
http://blackstonekids.eventbrite.com/.


We can’t wait to see you @ the library!
