Any parent who has been through a traditional tonsillectomy with their child knows that the recovery can be excruciating. Sleepless nights due to extreme throat and ear pain, as well as loss of appetite for up to a week, are typical symptoms kids experience after the procedure.
The library is offering a Turtle Show Workshop on Saturday, April 4th at 2:00 p.m. The program will introduce the audience to a variety of species of turtles and tortoises. You will also learn the difference between the two, what cold-blooded means and why turtles are reptiles not amphibians. Live turtles will be on hand. This program is a family program.
As always, the Library offers a Family Program every first Saturday of the month between October and June.

Our largest snow fall of the year held off just long enough for us to host our 7th Annual Cabin Fever Festival at the Elks Club. Like last year we used this event as a means to boost membership, we were successful and enrolled 50 new families into the Alliance.
The event was filled with entertainment from several local vendors, games from Big Fun Toys, Photo Booth from kennethchenphotography.com, HUMC Infant CPR Demonstrations, Lead Safety through Hudson Perinatal Consortium, Fancy Balloons from Totally Zany Dan, Face Painting with Rachel Evans, Computer Demonstrations from Little Detectives, Gymnastics by the Little Gym of Jersey City, Musical Demonstrations by Garden Street Music, Brownie Troop 2402 of Hoboken and Arts & Crafts from Smocks and Giggles. Thank you to all of the people and merchants that offered time and resources to make our event extra special.
Want to flatten that baby belly or simply give your regular work-outs a boost? This two-hour workshop will explore ways of finding that bikini-belly by recruiting your deep pelvic floor muscles. Learn the basics of the pelvic floor and the lower abdomen, both of which are instrumental in preventing and treating back, sacro-iliac and hip pain. Youʼll leave with an understanding of the basic anatomy and some easy strengthening and stretching exercises that will intensify your regular fitness routine and enhance your general well-being.

Please mark on your calendars: May 17th for the 8th Annual Hoboken Baby Parade presented by the Hoboken Historical Museum. The Baby Parade invites young children and their families to promenade along the Hudson River in costumes, fancy dress and decorated strollers. It is a fun-filled (and free!!) community event, not to be missed!
Right now, we are looking for sponsors, specifically local businesses/organizations that cater to Hoboken children and families. Sponsorships start at just $100.00. There are so many benefits to becoming a sponsor, in addition to supporting the Hoboken Historical Museum. Proceeds from this event help to fund the children/ family programs offered at the museum throughout the year.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in becoming a sponsor
