Build forts and more at North Shelby Library

By Nathan Howell / Staff Writer

BIRMINGHAM – Parents can spend an entertaining night building forts, reading with their children and more at the North Shelby library for their “Family Fun Night” series every Thursday.

The series offers a wide range of fun and educational activities including “Family Fort Night, Pj storytime and Pj puppets,” according to Vanessa Warner, Children’s Services Librarian.

The library usually offers a wide range of activities throughout the week for children, however due to school being in session many families are unable to attend. This program was created as a way for those parents to spend time with their children after school for one to two hours in an entertaining setting.

Family Fort Night is a new unstructured two-hour program that allows parents and their children to spend time together building forts.

“We put out the material and snacks, and the families build a fort by themselves and then spend time in the fort reading and playing games,” said Warner.

The library offers other activities including their longest running program “Pj Storytime.” Warner described it as one of their most popular activities allowing parents to “relax and enjoy a nice story time with their kids.”

Similarly the library offers a “Pj Puppets” program where you can “wear your pjs and have a puppet-y good time.”

Most events are open to all ages with caregivers. More information about children’s events at the North Shelby Library can be found at Northshelbylibrary.org or by calling 439-5500.
