Farm Baby Petting Zoo at the Branch Library Tuesday, Light Up the Neighborhood with the Moms

Events this week in Charlestown.

• The Charlestown Branch Library, 179 Main St., will have a Farm Baby Petting Zoo on Tuesday, Dec. 17 from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Reserve your child's place now, because we will run out of space for this popular program. All children will be able to pet a piglet and goat and have a chance to hold kittens, bunnies and other small animals. All ages from babies to big kids love this program. Twenty children will be allowed into the zoo for sessions at 10:30 a.m, 11 a.m, 11:30 a.m, and noon. Please email the children's librarian, Laura Miller, at lmiller@bpl.org to reserve your place. Be sure to include the time(s) you prefer and the number of children you will bring.

• Please join the Charlestown Mothers Association in "Decking the Homes & Streets of Charlestown" for the Month of December. They are encouraging members and neighbors to decorate their homes with lights and decorations for the Holiday Season in preparation of a weekend tour of the neighborhood.

St. Mary's Church, 55 Warren St. will conduct an Advent Prayer and Reconciliation Service on Thursday, Dec. 19, at 7:30 p.m. The Advent Season is an appropriate moment to reflect on your life in a Sacramental way, and to engage in special moments of prayer. At the conclusion of the Service, if you choose, you can receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation privately with a priest. 

• Listen to a story about a wild animal and meet the star of the story when a naturalist-educator from Mass Audubon's Drumlin Farm leads half-hour story-telling sessions for children up to 12 at the Charlestown Branch Library at 179 Main St. on Wednesday, Dec. 18 from 10:30 a.m. to noon. There will be three 30-minute sessions: at 10:30 a.m; 11:05 a.m; and 11:40 a.m. Pre-registration is encouraged especially for the first session. Please email Laura Miller atlmiller@bpl.org to reserve a space for your child or group.
