This is an “Open House” to showcase all the new materials that this grant has allowed us to purchase for the children’s room at the library. This grant has allowed us to buy more materials that help with early literacy as well as in continued literacy with older children. There is something for all interests and abilities.
We invite children up through 6th grade and their families and anyone who works with children to come see all the great new materials we have for children. Suggested reading lists of the new materials will be available.
Light refreshments will be served. The first 50 children who come will receive a free new book. Stop by to see all the new titles and maybe check out a few to take home.
