Attendees must have tickets, which are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis to Scarsdale cardholders in the Children’s Room half an hour before the start. Children are limited to attend one Mother Goose session per week.
- The weekly Needlemania!, a crochet club for kids in grades three and up will meet Thursday at 4 p.m. Children have an opportunity to learn the basics or show off their existing skills while meeting new friends.

- Dogs will lend their ears to young readers who want to practice reading out loud in “Wag Your Tale” on Saturday at 3 p.m. Although dogs aren’t good conversationalists, they make great listeners. Children who are tentative about their reading skills can gain confidence by reading to an uncritical canine companion.
