Take Your Child to the Library Day Logo


Did you know February 6, 2016 marks the fifth annual Take Your Child to the Library Day? This event was founded in 2011 by two Connecticut librarians, Nadine Lipman and Caitlin Augusta, along with artist Nancy Elizabeth Wallace. It inspires families to get involved in their local community and take advantage of all libraries have to offer. Kids can explore books in a comfortable, welcoming environment and get excited about reading. The goal is to encourage lifelong library participation.
To further engage your students' families, here is a printable you can send home featuring the top 10 reasons every family should visit their local library.
