We have a fun event planned for the day after Thanksgiving, a Holiday kick-off for kids to make and personalize a gift for a loved one. We will also have craft supplies out to make cards and gift tags! No sign-up is necessary, drop in when you can from 11am-3pm!
It is national picture book month! The library’s collection of picture books is one of our largest. Why are picture books so important? At their heart, picture books are stories that can take the most complex of ideas or concepts and pare them down into very human stories that speak to the heart and mind of the young child, mostly because of their short format and accompanying artwork.
Picture books allow for quality time between a caregiver and a young child, promoting reading and story as something to share and something to enjoy. And, in a world of screens, picture books allow for a dynamic and hands-on experience for the reader. Studies have shown that regularly sharing picture books with children increases their feelings of empathy.
Fact of the Week:
On the eve of the Nazis invading Paris, H.A. and Margaret Rey fled the city on bicycles. What did they have with them? A rough manuscript for the first Curious George book.
