Hi, everyone,

Take Your Child to the Library Day is working busily on a number of things for our second year. We should have announcements soon.

In the meantime, we are beginning our 2013 participation list. If you are planning to join Take Your Child to the Library Day in 2013, please leave us a comment and we will add you to the participation list. 

1. It's free
2. You celebrate at your library in the way that works for you
3. You can celebrate at any level from handing out bookmarks to having a performer to sponsoring a craft.

We hope to include more libraries in more states and provinces this year, and most importantly, more families! Thanks for joining us and spreading the word :)

Geno Auriemma Pictures

This is the photo that we have permission to use along with the text "Take Your Child to the Library Day, February 4, 2012" - We are permitted to use Geno Auriemma's name, but not his title as he is promoting as a citizen, not an award winning coach :)
