Castle With Royal Attire, Magnet Station and More at Apache Junction Library

Posted in Where To by

If you’re anything like me when it comes to summer and kids… the more options to beat the heat the better! So when I recently heard about the Apache Junction Library being an awesome place for young ones, I had to give it a shot.


(Plus I’m currently battling one toddler giving up naps while one still needs lots of sleepy time, so car rides and me get along just fine…but I digress.)



We arrived a few minutes before opening time and thanks to the huge playground outside got straight to our adventure while we waited. I immediately became a kid again as we strolled into the children’s area through a magical archway of giant, candy colored storybooks and a welcoming, two-story castle just begging to be explored (complete with dress up clothes and a royal throne)!



Around the corner from the castle is a perfect learning area, offering hands on play stations in every nook and cranny. Some of the fun included a felt board wall, a magnet station, a moveable clock, gears and levers, puzzles, and even a kitchen! If I thought it couldn’t get better, a cute little puppet show theatre proved me wrong.



Further exploration at the opposite end of the children’s area led us to a block play station, a dragon’s lair (with a huge dragon peeking out over the wall to keep an eye on things), a light up picture wall, and a coloring station. Oh, and last but not least (because it is a library after all) the BOOKS… a huge selection great for many age levels and interests.



It can be difficult to find places that hold kids interests for more than a few minutes, and we played here for around two hours (which is saying a lot for 2 toddlers)!



I’m glad we took the time to visit the Apache Junction Library because it will definitely be a new favorite, and I highly recommend it to other activity-seeking moms… summer heat or not.
