Both events require pre-registration at the Children’s Room desk or by calling the library at 508-485-5031.

Drama Out of the Box
Saturday, November 9th, 11:00 – 11:45 am
For ages 5 years old+
Educator Meredith Charles will return to help children explore acting through storytelling, pantomime and creative expression. Her website explains:
What is “Drama out of the box?” It is the method I use to encourage, motivate, and guide students. . . At it’s core, it is improvisation. I never know exactly what will happen, as the students are the players. I provide the structure and the facilitation, but the end result comes from their ideas, thoughts and experiences.
*I was initially surprised that the first event would cut so close to school hours for K-3 students. Then I noticed that November 5th is a Professional Development Day for Southborough (and Northborough) public schools.
