Boy! I can’t wait for March to get here. Why? Because March is Reading Month! And Reading Month means First Grade Round Up! This is the 18th year the Children’s Tween and Teen Services Librarians will host first grade classes from local schools. And I haven’t missed one yet! Kids get a tour of the library and meet my Giraffe friends Caribou and Rafiki. Then they make a craft and see a really funny puppet show. The best part of First Grade Round Up is that each First Grader gets a library card and checks out a book that day
These eight stations are for kids and their parents, and have the Microsoft Office suite as well as games and Internet access. Kids and parents can surf with or next to each other, or parents can get things done while kids play games or do homework.
Have fun at the library during Mid-Winter Break!
Fun Variety Show - Children ages 5-12 and their caregivers can join us for a fun filled variety show with Vikki Gasko's case of characters. You’ll enter into a hilarious, musical world of fun filled family entertainment. Register online today.
