Fun at the library!
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.
The Books for Babies program welcomes each new baby born in the Bristol community with a picture book. New parents may choose the book they would like in honor of their child’s birth. For years after, as the babies grow, the book remains in the library with a bookplate containing the child’s name. Independent readers are delighted when they find “their” book or the books of their friends on the shelf years later. This program is funded by local donations.
We have an audio center for the kids with a CD player and a good, old-fashioned cassette player with headphones for them to listen to. 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.
We also have the nature exploration kit with aquatic nets, guide books, bug houses and more available to borrow. Works for regular bugs too!
