Spring is here. I know that, not because the weather has convinced me, but because I see the school-age children out and about, off from school for (it must be) spring break. It looks like the weather is not going to cooperate by providing warm, sunny, spring days, for playing outdoors. So if you find yourself looking for something to do with your kids, I have a suggestion.
KPL is offering a series of fun events and activities geared for young school-aged children. The
program is called Spring Break Staycation and it runs all week. Check out the KPL website to learn more. While you are at the library with your children, be sure and visit the bookstore on the lower level. We have a wonderful Children’s area, filled with many story books, picture books, and nonfiction. There is also a teen/tween section filled with books for your middle or high schooler.
This week we have a great selection of Caldecott and Newbery award winning books available. And as a special spotlight for spring break we have a cart full of tween/teen fiction priced 3 for $1.00.
Finally, because April is poetry month, we have put together a cart full of children’s poetry. There are some really fun and entertaining poetry books I think you’ll enjoy sharing with your children.
We look forward to seeing you.
