Babytime is Moving Inside!

Babytime is moving inside for the rest of the summer! 

Between the UV rays, heat, humidity, and air quality, storytime attendees and Miss Hannah have decided to make the switch and hold Babytime in the Children’s Room. We’ll still meet on Wednesdays at 10:30am for songs, rhymes, scarves, and stories with Koko Koala.

While Babytime is intended for infants and pre-walkers, bigger kids are welcome as well, and they’re invited to bring a doll or stuffie along to use as their own baby!

Summer Reading for Teens: Books, Prizes, and Programs!

Easton students, find your school-assigned summer reading at the Ames Free Library! Oliver Ames High School students can find their books on the cart in the Teen Den, Southeastern Regional students can find their books on the display shelves outside the Teen Den, and Easton Middle School students can find their books in the Children’s Room. If ebooks or audiobooks are your thing, check Libby or Hoopla, where you can use your library card to check out your books in one of those formats.

16th Annual Bruins PJ Drive

From February 1st through March 15th, 2023, the Boston Bruins, Cradles to Crayons, the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners, and Wonderfund came together for the 16th annual Pajama Drive. Every year, the drive collects donations of new pajamas for children living in low-income and homeless situations. It aims to ensure that all children in Massachusetts can get a warm night’s sleep so that they are rested for the day ahead of them. The goal for 2023 was 10,000 pairs of PJs.  

Snow Slime!

Were you dreaming of a White Christmas but experienced a bitterly cold one instead? Are you dreading the snow and slush that the rest of this winter may have in store for us? Do you wish you could pick up a cloud and squish it?
