Take Your Child to the Library Day

Take Your Child to the Library Day is an annual event for families to explore the library, get to know our collections and our librarians, and maybe hear a story or two. However, due to ongoing public health conditions, we encourage you to explore the library from home as well! Come have a quick look around Youth Services, then check out a few books to share at home, look at our online resources, and read, readread together!

In the library, you can:

  • Pick up a preselected book bundle, grab a Quick Pick book, or get recommendations from the librarian
  • Pick up a coloring contest sheet (return to Youth Services by Saturday, February 12)
  • Explore with a mini scavenger hunt
  • Get your child a library card (or update their card, if necessary) at the Circulation Desk

At home, you can:
