Take Your Child to the Library Day
Nadine Lipman, a children's librarian in Waterford, Connecticut, came up with the idea for Take Your Child to the Library Day and selected the first Saturday in February as the annual day of celebration. The idea gained popularity immediately, and librarians started planning special events, programs, and displays. Won't you be part of our 2nd annual event on Saturday, February 2, 2013?
It's FreeIt doesn't cost anything to be part of a child's first (most recent!) visit to the Library. Start a Library card drive, host a performer, run a storytime, offer a craft, or just showcase the wonderful services your Library offers every day of the year. We can't wait to hear about the creative ideas your Library is cooking up.
