Children's Room

Welcome to the Ivoryton Library Children’s Room!

It is so wonderful to be back in the library and we are now open to visitors from 10-2 Monday through Friday!  I have lots of new books for you to take home and enjoy, movies too!  Also, on Tuesday mornings I host a ZOOM craft that I hope you will join me in creating with your child.  I will continue to be with you virtually through Facebook Live Story Times Monday, Wednesday and Fridays at 9:30 through the summer. Please comment in the feed if your child is watching, what animal they would like to sing about and I will be sure to include them in my “Hello” song and “Old MacDonald has a Farm”. Links on this page will be continually updated to offer more suggestions of great opportunities to distance learn, create and recreate. >>1000 Books before Kindergarten Challenge…Perfect time to keep track! Email me your completed lists of 100 books, prizes will be awarded. EBartlett@IvorytonLibrary.org.
Wishing everyone health, happiness and safe distance adventures!
Kindest Regards,
Ms. Elizabeth
