A love of reading and books starts with pictures, stories and rhymes which even the youngest child can enjoy.
“Take Your Child To The Library Day” is slated for Feb. 4. It’s a great excuse to swing by for story time, which begins at 2 p.m. Children can enjoy crafts and other activities all day.
Whatever the age of your child, you will be given a warm welcome. Gone are the days when libraries were dreary silent places patrolled by grumpy staff. There are special areas for children with bright displays, easy-to-access books and comfortable seating. Nobody will expect your child to remain silent, so no need to worry. Getting a library card is a simple process and the staff are friendly and helpful.
The event is a wonderful way for people in our community to learn about early literacy programs, educational resources and fun events that our librarians provide for free every day of the year. The staff will even advise on books for homework assignments, which is good news for any busy parent.
