Educational food fun at the Library for kids – Saturday

This Saturday, the Southborough Library is hosting more programs to explore healthy food and cooking with kids. One event is for ages 4-7 (with an adult). The other is a “party” geared to 9-11 year olds.

Both events are part of the series made possible with grant funds from the Library Services & Technology Act distributed by the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners.*

These do require pre-registration and have limited space. To sign up for either, email Youth Services Librarian Marianna Sorensen at 

Young Food Explorers flyerYoung Food Explorers —  for ages 4-7 (with one “adult companion”)
Saturday, May 13, 11:00 am – 12:00 pm, Eaton Room

Young picky eaters will get to explore the sight, texture, smell, sound, temperature and taste of various foods without placing any pressure to eat it! Adults can learn how to continue the exercise at home to ease the tension around mealtimes.

Taco Party flyerTaco Party — for ages 9-11
Saturday, May 13, 1:00 – 2:00 pm, Eaton Room

Come enjoy making tacos at the library, led by a professional children’s cooking instructor! Kids will work in pairs and create their own taco feast with guacamole, salsa, beans, cheese and lettuce. They will practice knife skills, mashing, seasoning and assembling.

*Tools used in these events were funded by The Friends of the Southborough Library.
