Schedule for 5 days in Prague in September - Feedback

I am trying devise a schedule that incorporates all the top sites, but isn't overwhelming. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. We're staying in Mala Strana and we plan to walk to all of these sites:
Day 1: Charles Bridge at Sunup, Klementinum library, Prague Municipal Library to see the Infinity Book Tower, Church of St Nicholas, Old Town Square, Old Town Hall and Tower, Astrological Clock, Church of Our Lady of Tyn,
Day 2: Nerudova, St Nicholas Church, David Cerny's Quo Vadis, 11:30 Lunch somewhere, 1:00 tour the Strahov library (we have a reservation to tour the library), Petrin
Day 3: Prague Castle via the Royal Garden, Wallenstein Garden, Kampa Island for dinner, David Cerney's Crawling Babies.
Day 4: Tour Prague: Jewish Quarter, Narodni National Museum, Vyshrad Palace, walk past Dancing House, Lennon Wall

We'll have breakfast at the hotel, but any recommendations for lunches or dinners near any of these agenda sites would be great.

Loved Prague. A couple of things: see the Dancing House at night as it’s much more lively and recognizable. We had gone past it a number of times on the tram and only realized it once it was lit up! One of those duh moments when traveling. And, whether you drink or not a visit to U Flecku, Kremencova 11, is in that same area and worth it. Best beer we had in Czechia! We didn’t eat there, but the food looked fantastic. Plus it is so entertaining to watch how the beer/liquors are delivered and how they keep track of what and how many have been consumed. Dinner time best for all that I would think. The interior of the building is beautiful. Stays busy so hang out to get seated.
We had an excellent tour in Prague from a nonprofit organization Tour 4 Charity. John Paul Schlamm is wonderful. His first language is English. Well worth the time and might work on your first day after you visit St. Charles Bridge.
Edit to add: The tour hits many of your first day sites, so would consolidate and get some background too. Plus helps to orient the old town for later.

And now for the darn it! We saw the kinetic Frank Kafka sculpture just because we passed by there, but now we have to return to Prague for all the other Cerny sculptures. Had I known………

I don't see Obecni Dum (Municipal House) on your list. I highly recommend it if you have any interest in Art Nouveau interiors. Only taking a tour (offered in English several times a day, but they can book up) gets you into the prettiest areas. There's a modest extra fee for a photo permit; I very much regretted not paying it.

Lennon Wall is just off kampa island , might save you time to visit there whilst you head to kampa island for dinner, BTW the Lennon was is nothing special and is completley different from what you see in toursit books.It has been painted over many times, the whole plaster wall has collapsed and been replastered, it is just an area for toursit to write graffiti.I do remember it nearly 30 years ago when it was still a place of protest but sadly it is just not the same place anymore
