Take Your Child to the Library Day 2015

Saturday, February 7th, 2015  10am - 5pm

The Mystic & Noank Library Children’s Room joins hundreds of libraries across the country to celebrate the third annual Take Your Child to the Library Day.  On Saturday, February 7th, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., the Library will feature games, crafts and films that encourage children to enjoy the Library, sign up for a library card, and join others for a day of fun.

This grass-roots effort was started in 2012 by Waterford, Connecticut Children’s Librarian, Nadine Lipman, and Stratford, Connecticut’s librarian, Caitlin Augusta. After three years, over 400 libraries in 38 states (to date) are participating.

The Mystic & Noank Library will feature children’s Valentines crafts, Chess and board games, a reptile presentation by the Denison Pequotsepos Nature Center at 11 a.m., and a double feature movie in the Ames Room starting at 1:00 p.m.  All events are free and open to the public. 

For more information, call the Children’s Room at (860) 572-7211 or email mnlchildren@gmail.com.  Visit www.mysticnoanklibrary.org or find us on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.
