Master Class Online - Eli's New Clothes: A Book Reading by Author Kerri Mullen

This entry in our Master Class series is a book reading with author and Stonehill College adjunct professor, Kerri Mullen. Ms. Mullen, a former resident of Easton, recently published a children's picture book featuring a gender non-conforming character. Eli’s New Clothes was inspired by raising her transgender son and the belief that every child should have the opportunity to relate to a literary character. Originally presented on Thursday, December 3, 2020.

Miss Jess Suggests

Welcome to Miss Jess Suggests!

In each episode of this series, Head of Youth Services Jessica Block recommends great books for you to try (plus some bonus titles!). Different episodes will focus on one interest level or age group, so if you don't hear about something "just right" for your reader, check back! We'll cover books for babies and toddlers straight through middle school. And of course, they are all available here in the Children's Room at the Ames Free Library.

S'More Stories and Crafts

Starting Friday, October 2, 2020, tune in for Miss Alyisha's gently creepy Fall storytimes! These storytimes are perfect for preschool and early elementary-aged children.

Check here each week in October to hear about ghosts, mummies, and more!

Then pick up a pre-bagged, themed craft in the Children's Room, while supplies last (you'll find us on the middle floor of the Library).
