Spring officially starts on March 20. Celebrate the budding season with these reads for kids. 

Goodbye winter, hello spring by illustrator Kenard Pak

A boy and his dog explore the countryside, greeting the elements of nature that they meet and noting how the environment is changing from winter to spring.

While out exploring Mick, Mack, and Molly take a ride on a fallen log and learn how the snow melts and ends up in the rivers and lakes and eventually in the sky.

Thank you for helping us have the best 62 days of our year at CPL! Join us Saturday, 8/15 @ 10:00am on Facebook Live for an Elephant & Piggie puppet show to celebrate 62 Days of Summer! Piggie and Gerald will be sharing a hilarious live show that you can enjoy from anywhere. Then explore more with the Elephant & Piggie resources and books below.

Baby Drive-In: Grab-and-Go

Baby Drive-In

The Baby Drive-In is coming to you as a grab-and-go kit this year! 

All you'll need to have on hand at home is a cardboard box and some glue (or tape). The Baby Drive-In Kit supplies the rest needed to decorate and transform your box into a kid-friendly car. For a tutorial on this, check out this video created by Miss Marianne.

Each kit will contain:

  • a large sheet of paper to cover your box
  • cutout circles for wheels and headlights
  • a paper plate for a steering wheel
  • a packet of microwave popcorn - for the grownups!
  • a list of suggested titles for viewing via Hoopla Digital*

 

Registration for kits will take place for children 0-2 years old from July 29 thru August 12, while supplies last. Once you've registered to reserve your kit, you will receive an email with instructions on how to pick up your kit at the library. 

 

*CPL Library card required in order to use Hoopla Digital

Stories and Songs from Storytime

In Storytime we are able to pretend a great many things. This time around, we decided to ignore the blustery, rainy weather and focus on Gardens. There are so many kinds of gardens you can grow and if you make a container garden indoors, you don't even have to wait for Spring.
