Curious Kids

Kids are curious about a lot of things, and we encourage their curiosity!  Join in this program that will explore many questions, ponderings and imaginative fun.  Through games, songs, stories and tons of excitement, the biggest question at the end of the program will be “What will we think of next?”

10:00-10:30am | infants and toddlers
10:30-11:00am | preschool and school aged
11:00am | book lending 

Beat the Heat

Join us for stories and songs followed by a free swim for participating children. Children swim for free, however the cost for adults to swim is $5.25. 

Lions Pool regulations:
- children 8 years and under MUST be accompanied by an adult in the pool while swimming
- the ratio of children under 8 years is 2 children: 1 adult. Strong swimmers can take a deep end test, and should they pass they would be exempt from the rule.
