The Children's Room

 

Our Children's Librarians have years of experience working with youngsters and the books they love. Weekly Storytimes and all other programs and activities are thoughtfully designed to encourage, in children of all ages, curiousity, learning, social engagement and a love of books and reading.

Our regular programs include:

Weekly Story times  for toddlers and for Preschool-Kindergarten. Nancy and Carolyn pick the best stories and come up with fun songs, dance, and crafts. Sometimes held outdoors for extra fun!

Monthly Baby Time with Carolyn an interactive story time for 0 through 24 months designed to stimulate hand-eye coordination, awareness, verbalization, listening skills and it is just plain fun. Also a great opportunity for young parents to meet one another.

Humor Book Club for 4th and 5th graders. Join Nancy for a hilarious read each month. The group discusses the book, does a related activity and shares a snack.

1,000  Books Before Kindergarten is an ongoing program for children 0-5.  This a free national program is designed to get children ready to learn to read when they begin school. Readers earn milestone stickers and parade around the library when they reach 1,000! 

 

 


News From the Children's Room

 

NEW KID LIBRARIAN PROGRAM


Are you a parent of an 8 to 12-year old who loves to read? We are taking "job applications" for Kid Librarian! The chosen children will get to pick a theme (or their favorite books) to make a fun book display in the children's room. All books must be from the Juvenile Fiction or Juvenile Non-fiction collections. 

Our First Kid Librarian is Dom, a 5th grader at Danville Elementary who likes to read graphic novels and humor books. Bring your readers by to check out Dom's display and apply to do their own display!

Applications are available at the library. 



Summer Reading Program

 

Each Summer we embark on an exciting reading journey known as the Summer Reading Program designed to keep children engaged in reading over their school break. From a festive kick-off event to an-end-of program-picnic each week is filled with reading logs, crafts, stickers, and prizes. 

This year's theme is Adventure Begins at the Library. Stay tuned for all the details!
