Saturday, February 7, 2015, is the fourth annual Take Your Child to the Library Day. This special day was the brainchild of Nadine Lipman, a children's librarian in Waterford, Connecticut, and serves as an encouragement to families across the nation to visit their local libraries.
Every child needs access to the many wonderful resources that the public library has to offer and whether your family are regular library users or visiting us for the first time, your children will enjoy a visit to your nearest branch. So take your child to the library and on February 7th, stop by the Youth Services Desk to receive a small thank-you for your visit and color and create your own story featuring Mo Willems' beloved Elephant and Piggie. Don't worry if you can't make it in, print the activity out and enjoy at home.
