Book & Craft Pairing: Books about Color with Rainbow Whirligig Toys

Pick up a book, & get a complete take-home craft kit!

The Hubbard Library Youth Room is offering a monthly book and craft pairing program; check out a book about our theme of the month, and take home everything you need to make an accompanying craft!

This month we're making magical wildflower gardens, paired with books about spring and gardens!

After we receive your registration, we will send you a list of available books about the theme. Write back with your selection (or let us know your child's age and ask for a book bundle - 7-10 books on the theme already packaged up by age level) and when you pick your selection up from our curbside delivery service, you'll also get a kit that contains everything you need to make this lovely craft! If you need enough for multiple children, just let us know!

Poetry Book Bundles

CELEBRATE NATIONAL POETRY MONTH!

We'll help your child celebrate it with a bundle of children's poetry books! Register to reserve a bundle of 5 books; we'll make sure they are suitable for your child's age, and we'll throw in a simple  "poem flower" craft when you pick it up through curbside service.

Register now!

This event is part of a series of grant funded programs presented in collaboration with Hampden Hampsire Conservation District.  Join us along with the Hampden Hampshire Conservation District for a general gardening class. They will present a powerpoint talk and then we will go outside and plant a small lasagna garden, which is a process of layering cardboard or newspaper, compost, hay and soil to make a garden anywhere at any time.

Other events in this series include:

  • Container Gardening (5/21) 

  • Ludlow Riverwalk Nature Walk (9/1)

  • Composting (7/21)

All events in this series take place in-person, outdoors on the library lawn.
