Take Your Child To The Library

Take Your Child To The Library, February 2, 2019 graphicJoin us on Saturday, February 2, 2019, to celebrate the 8th annual Take Your Child to the Library Day with free events and activities for children and families. The Library will offer stations for kids and parents to explore literacy and learning at their own pace.  Launched in Connecticut in 2012, Take Your Child to the Library Day has blossomed into an international celebration with nearly 1,200 participating libraries from 49 states and 5 countries. The brainchild of retired Waterford children’s librarian Nadine Lipman, the event was developed to spotlight libraries as vital community resources that enrich, educate and entertain – and to encourage families everywhere to take their children to their local libraries.
