Screen-Free Family Fun with Tri-Town Youth Services, May 4 & 5

screen freeREGION 4 – To celebrate National Screen-Free Week, Tri-Town Youth Services is partnering with two local libraries to offer Screen-Free Family Fun.

Young children and their parents are invited to the Ivoryton Public Library for free vision screenings and art activities inspired by Andy Warhol on Wednesday, May 4, from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m.  The Essex Lions Club will conduct vision screenings with a sophisticated camera that can detect seven major eye deficiencies.

Tri-Town Youth Services invites all kids ages five and up for crafting and storytelling with projects from the book, Show Me a Story, by Emily Neuburger.  Gather at the Essex Public Library after school on Thursday, May 5, from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. to make “story stones” and learn the art of bookbinding.  The afternoon will wrap up with some collaborative storytelling fun.

Both of these screen-free programs are free and open to the public.  Call Tri-Town at 860-526-3600 for more information.
