Children, ages 2 to 5, with a parent or caregiver, are welcome to Little Crafters Storytime every Friday at 10:30 am in the Children’s Storytime Room. Listen to a story and stay for a simple craft based on that book. Free! No registration necessary.
As a courtesy to others and because of the craft activity, please no daycare groups at this storytime. Groups are welcome to come to the Tuesday or Wednesday storytimes.
Library Lawn - Outside of the Children's Storytime Room
It's like a taco truck, but with Sketchbooks.
The Sketchbook Project is a global, crowd-sourced art project and interactive, traveling exhibition of handmade books. The mission is to allow anyone to be able to participate in art and to create a collection of work that represents the current state of artists worldwide. Every year, the Sketchbooks go on a road trip, a.k.a. the Mobile Sketchbook Library.
If you read 50 hours or more during the Summer Reading Program you will be awarded with the grand prize — a sleepover inside the Library! You must hand in your Reading Incentive Map with your marked 50 hours, and sign-up at the Kids' Desk by Monday, August 11.
The sleepover starts at 7 pm on Friday night, August 15, and pickup is 7:30 am Saturday morning. Parents are more than welcome and encouraged to attend! The sleepover prize is for Robot Readers only.
Any questions, please contact the Kids' Desk at 970-879-0240 x313.
