ZANESVILLE, Ohio – 2020 is just one day away and as adults prepare to watch the ball drop at midnight, area children have an opportunity to have a party of their own long before their bedtime. The John McIntire Library—located in downtown Zanesville—will host its Noon Year’s Eve event tomorrow beginning at 11 AM. Jennifer Heston, with the library, says the party will be complete with snacks and activities for the whole family.
“It’s a way to ring in the new year early with children—especially for families with young children who maybe can’t stay up until midnight—and we’ll be having all kinds of activities going on. We’ll have snacks; because it’s a party of course. We’ll be having some games to play; we do the Minute to Win It style of games.”
In addition to Noon Year’s Eve, the John McIntire Library will also hold regularly scheduled story time programs for various age groups in the new year.
“We offer story times for three ages of children here at John McIntire Library; and we offer them for babies, 0 to 24 months, and that is Tuesdays at 10:30. We offer them for toddlers, ages 2 to 3 and a half, and that is Wednesdays or Thursdays at 10:30. And we offer them for preschoolers, which is 3 and a half to 5, and that is Thursdays at 1 o’clock. And those are all free and they’re a great way to work on early literacy skills as well as just have some fun.”
Noon Year’s Eve will be held tomorrow at the John McIntire Library from 11 AM to 12:15 PM. All are welcome and there is no charge to attend.
