The Youth Services department is located on the first floor of the Barrington Area Library. Contact us - we're happy to help!

We are offering a wide variety of indoor and online programs, Take-And-Make Kits, and other surprises, and have reopened some of our interactive play elements - check out the Events Calendar and visit us soon to see what is available! Masks are now optional but recommended for the public while visiting the Library. Staff will continue to wear masks while working in public areas. Safety measures will be in place for in-person programs, including reduced capacities and physical distancing.

July Baby Time Rhymes!

If you can't make it to Baby Time this month, or if you just can't get enough and want to recreate it at home-we've got you covered! Here are all of the wonderful rhymes we'll be sharing in our July sessions.

 

 All the Little Babies

All the little babies go bouncin’, bouncin’

All the little babies go bouncin’ now.

All the little babies go bouncin’, bouncin’

All the little babies go bouncin’ now.

 

All the little babies go swayin’, swayin’

All the little babies go swayin’ now.

All the little babies go swayin’, swayin’

All the little babies go swayin’ now.

 

All the little babies say hello, hello

All the little babies say hello now.

All the little babies say hello, hello

All the little babies say hello now.

 

It's Raining, It's Pouring

It's raining. It's pouring.

The old man is snoring

He went to bed and bumped his head

and didn’t get up in the morning.

 

Hot Cross Buns

Hot cross buns!

Hot cross buns!

One a penny, two a penny,

Hot cross buns!

 

Bumble Bee

Bumble bee was in the barn

Carrying his dinner under his arm 

Bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!

 

Baby, Baby Dumpling

Baby, baby dumpling,

Put him in the pot

Sugar him and butter him

And eat him while he’s hot!

 

Bumpin' Up and Down in my Little Red Wagon

Bumpin' up and down in my little red wagon,

Bumpin' up and down in my little red wagon,

Bumpin' up and down in my little red wagon,

Won't you be my darling?

One wheel's off and the axle's broken,

One wheel's off and the axle's broken,

One wheel's off and the axle's broken,

Won't you be my darling?

 

 Wiggle Waggle

Wiggle waggle went the bear

Catching bees in his underwear

One bee out

One bee in

One bee bit him on his big bear skin

Bzzzzzz!
