Forest of Reading is about to begin…just one short week away! We’ll be visiting schools in January, but children are welcome to start reading in December. (It’s always a great way to get ahead over the holidays.)
The books in each category are really interesting this year…we can’t wait to put up our display and see which books are taken out first!
If you have a reader in Kindergarten to Grade 8, encourage them to join our Forest of Reading program this year. It’s a wonderful way to engage new readers, to promote all of the fantastic Canadian authors and illustrators featured, and to get through the winter blahs. (And at the end of April…we’ll have a voting night and party!)
We’re getting ready for a fun night of crafting at the end of the month. Registration begins today for Tuesday, November 28 from 6-7pm. Kids aged 6-11 will join us for fun, frosty crafts, games, and more. It’s one of our most popular nights of the year, so don’t delay—register today!
Do you have little ones who are eager to get out tonight? We’re holding a Halloween Storytime Drop In for 2-5 year olds this afternoon at 1:30pm. It’ll be a fun half hour of spooky stories and more–all aimed at the younger crowd.
Dress up, if you like, and drop in. No registration necessary. See you later……..
Today is a Funtivity Drop In day! Come by anytime between 1:30 – 3:30pm for LEGO fun! This is for everyone–not just those with a PA Day today. As always, this event will have minimal supervision, so parents, please plan to stay with your young ones.
Lonely Planet has put together the 10 Places that bring Children’s Books to life. You can now visit those familiar locations you’ve read about in books, from the rainforests of THE JUNGLE BOOK, to PIPPI LONGSTOCKING’s Swedish roots. What a fun thing to start planning!
We’re almost done with babies, and that means we’re thinking about Toddlers now. Join us for a fun five-week session of stories, early literacy games, rhymes and more. It’s going to be a busy morning, but lots of fun, too!
This program runs Thursday mornings at 9:30am, from Oct. 26 – Nov. 30. Register your child aged 1-2 years old by calling 257-2702, or dropping by the library anytime before the session begins.
