Banned Book Bundles!

Stand up to censorship!

You'd be amazed at some of the classic, popular, awesome books that have been the subject of censorship attempts! The reasons why are varied, but the result is the same; holes in the cultural and international education of our children, restriction of children's ability to grow and learn, and narrowed worldviews that plant the seeds of bigotry, with the implication being that anyone who believes differently from them must be foolish, immoral, or misinformed (source here).

Fight censorship! Click below to reserve a bundle of 5 picture books or 3 chapter books (tailored to your child's age) that you can pick up from our curbside service or when visiting the library.  You can also ask for more or fewer books or for books for multiple age ranges!

Want more info? Check out this short article from the Washington Post about why your kid should read banned books, or this page from the American Library Association about Banned Books Week 2021.

Hybrid program: Sing With Me!

10:30am - 11:00am

Lively music and movement for little ones and their grown ups!

 

If you have a little one who loves music, this program is for you! Join us for a half-hour of adult-&-child singing, clapping, and stomping along to favorite kids’ songs; the program will take place on the library lawn when weather allows with equipment set up during the live event for those who wish to participate virtually; the program will happen exclusively via Zoom when weather is bad. Parents & caregivers, please stay with your little ones, as this is a program for both of you!
