September Activities

The summer flew by here at the Children's Library, and we're already setting our sights on Fall. September has some brand new programs to get us back into the school spirit. Here are a few highlights:

Adopt a Reading Buddy- Starting September 1
This fall, little ones can adopt one of our stuffed animal reading buddies by completing a booklet of pre-literacy activities. They'll get to choose from our collection of little animals looking for homes with kids who love to read. They'll also be entered in a contest to win our biggest reading buddy, Teddy, a 4ft. tall teddy bear!

Mom 2 Mom -  September 24 at 12:30 pm

Playing around at Team S.T.E.A.M.

Team S.T.E.A.M. was a new program we started this summer to explore science, technology, engineering, art and math. Thanks to a grant from First Energy, we had the opportunity to play with lots of cool new toys like Keva blocks, conductive paint, and circuits. Check out some footage and photos from two of our programs.

Big Winners!

Our Summer Reading Game was a big hit with neighboring schools, daycares, and day camps! Kids read as a group with their teacher or on their own to earn free books and prizes. Our friends at Tyson-Schoener read together so often that they completed the game and earned their summer reading t-shirts!
