Library Offers Summer Fun for Kids

Library story times, movies and other free events offer a great way to keep kids’ brains engaged throughout the summer. For instance, many of our libraries invite toddlers and preschoolers to story time with bubbles, finger puppets and parachute play. Others host Family Nights with music and activities.

I remember as a child, a neighborhood mom loading all the kids on my street into her car and dropping us off at Kendall Branch Library. One time we watched a Pippi Longstockings movie. Afterward, the librarian showed us where to find books on that same character. A second mother picked us up from the library and took us to eat lunch. The next week, other moms took a turn. The neighborhood kids loved it.

Until the next nap time...
