Take Your Child to the Library Day

Celebrate Take Your Child to the Library Day with us on February 1, 2020!

Reinforce your child’s literacy skills with a variety of activities in the Children’s Room.

  • play board games or put together puzzles
  • explore with a mini scavenger hunt
  • make a bookmark
  • write or tell a story with the Build A Story cards

And if your child doesn’t have a library card yet, maybe today is the day! You can register your child for a card at the main desk.

 While you’re here, you can also donate to the Bruins’ Annual Pajama Drive by bringing a pair a new pajamas to the Children’s Room! (All sizes from infant through teen are accepted. After February 1, donations can be dropped off at the Circulation Desk. The Pajama Drive runs through March 15.)

Children's Room, Main Library
