Saturday, February 3, 2018 is Take Your Child to the Library Day. While the day does not prevent you from taking a child to the library any day, of course, this specific day celebrates the family-friendly activities, early literacy programs, educational resources, and fun events that libraries provide free to the community every day.
Take Your Child to the Library Day was launched in 2011 as a grassroots literacy project in Connecticut. Created by Connecticut librarians Nadine Lipman and Caitlin Augusta with Connecticut children’s book illustrator/author Nancy Elizabeth Wallace, it has become an international celebration. The event spotlights libraries as vital community resources that enrich, educate and entertain.
The Attleboro Public Library will be celebrating with a variety of “I Spy” activities. Puzzles, books and coloring pages are just some of the free family activities you will find here this Saturday from 10am-3pm. No need to register, just stop in the Children’s Room to participate.
Take Your Child to the Library Day is a free event endorsed by the Association for Library Service to Children (a division of the American Library Association), Reach Out and Read, and Read to Grow. For more information, visit www.takeyourchildtothelibrary.org.
