Summer Fun at the Library!
Summer Story Times
Wednesdays on the park at 12:15pm -grab a free lunch for the kids at Holley Hall and come hang out on the playground while Marita reads a fun story.
Thursdays at the library at 10:30 am-free lunch available for the kids following the stories.
This summer’s all age reading challenge is “Reading without walls.” Sign up at the library to learn more. Weekly raffle coming soon with a grand prize of a Kindle Fire! Visit the online Reading Log (here) to enter the books you read, or stop in the library and tell us about them.
For younger kids that like to read a lot of books on the same theme try one of our theme bags! Each bag comes with 10 books, a poem, and a small activity. You never know what one you might find but we have had bags about frogs, babies, birds, insects, ducks, trains, machines, and many others.
The One World Library Project has a beautiful red book shelf downstairs filled with books and movies that bring stories of other peoples and lands to us in the comfort of our own homes.
Come check out the children’s collection with plenty of the NEWEST picture books, audio books and other cherished treasures.
Lego Club is taking a break right now, but will return. Check back for the next session dates.
In the meantime, visit our calendar for more activities!
Two new things this year! The first is an audio center for the kids. There’s a CD player and a good, old-fashioned cassette player with headphones for kids to listen to a story while visiting the library. Although we no longer have cassettes to loan out, we do have a considerable selection of audio book CDs downstairs for preschoolers through 8th graders. Teens and adults can find a selection for them upstairs.
And don’t forget we have the nature exploration kit with aquatic nets, guide books, bug houses and more available to borrow. Also works for regular bugs!
Books for Babies is a program here at the library that dedicates books born to families in Bristol. Each spring these families are invite to enjoy a reception and choose the book dedicated to their little bundle of joy.
But new parents and new-to-the-area parents can stop in anytime to check out the library and the variety of materials for their little ones. Many play dates and lifelong friendships have started out right here at the library!
