Hey, have you heard the good news??! The library’s not open yet… but you can check out books to keep your at-home storytime and learning fun going! We all need to follow a few rules to make it work properly; this explains the procedure for Contactless Curbside Pickup.
In case you missed it – we’re running a Spring Reading Challenge to get you through these last few weeks before our SUMMER programming starts! Soon you’ll be able to pick up books we’ve got here in the library, or you can always keep working on those ebooks that we have available through Hoopla, Overdrive, and Libby.
Although we all have new routines now, things are still so different from “normal” that it’s good to slow down and have some quiet time once in a while. Coloring might be just the ticket! You don’t need any special materials; any kind of paper will do, and you can use crayons, markers, or colored pencils.
My hairdryer broke recently. It’s not a big deal; I almost never use it. But now what do I do with it? Well… a few times a year, we run a “take apart table” at the library – a chance for kids to look under the hood, so to speak, of common electronics and devices. We’ve dismantled a computer, a stereo, keyboards, a cell phone, a laminator… and parents have almost as much fun as their kids!
If you’ve somehow missed it, here’s your reminder to check out our virtual storytimes! It’s been hard not being able to see our favorite smiling faces every week, but we’re trying to keep your kiddos engaged with some online entertainment instead. If you’re a storytime regular, you’ll find a lot of familiar content along with familiar faces. If you haven’t been to storytime before, welcome! Now’s the time to check it out! There is a version of each regularly scheduled storytime updated every week.
Have you been curious about the library’s Pokémon Club? Always wanted to come, but aren’t sure how to play? Check out the Pokémon Trading Card Game online! You can create a login and jump right in to playing, but if you need help getting started, you’ll also find a series of YouTube videos introducing you to the card decks and game play.
Are you working on 1000 Books Before Kindergarten? Keep going! This program is still running even if the library is closed, and you can count absolutely everything anyone read with your child – even ebooks!
The battle is on! Just because you’re not in school right now doesn’t mean the Richardson-Olmsted Battle of the Books can’t continue! In collaboration with your 4th grade teachers, we are presenting the RO Battle of the Books online.
This year, due to our special circumstances, the Battle is open for voting by all RO students in grades 3, 4, or 5! Click here to find out more!
Contact email@example.com with any questions.
Missing the library about now? We are too! But you can keep reading – there are always old favorites to revisit, maybe new books at home you’ve never read, and, of course, ebooks through Hoopla, Overdrive, and Libby.
