The library board of trustees will hold its regular meeting Wednesday, January 27, 4:15 in the library meeting room.
Parents of young children are invited to sign up for the “1000 Books Before Kindergarten” program hosted by the library. This program encourages the love of reading in babies, toddlers and preschoolers in preparation for school. Parents/guardians are encouraged to record the number of books they read to their child using the READsquared app or another method that works for them. When children register they will earn a prize and more prizes will be given along the way!
Please contact the library for more information.
The Book Challenge for January is to read a book whose author uses initials in their name. We have a selection on display for you to choose from. Remember to notify the library when you complete the challenge so you may be entered to win a gift certificate from a local business.
Families are invited to join Virtual Story Time every Tuesday at 10 A.M. on Facebook Live. Please like the Harlem Public Library Facebook page so you may watch.
Each week Carly puts together take-home activity kits for children to pick up at the library.
