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 9-5 Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.  Wednesday 9-8 and Saturday 9-12.  I have lots of new books for you to take home and enjoy, movies too!  


Programming will be held in person and also virtually!  


 I will continue to be with you virtually through Facebook Live Story Times, Monday and Fridays at 9:30. 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”.   


On Tuesday mornings I host a  ZOOM story and craft time.  I hope you will join me in creating a work of art with your child!  Please email me for ZOOM login information and to pick up your child’s Grab and Go craft bag.  Bags will be ready for pickup the Friday before Story Time.

 

On Wednesdays, weather permitting, Story Time will be hosted in our Children’s Garden, OLDER SIBLINGS ARE ALWAYS WELCOME.  BYOB, Bring your own blanket and pre-registration is required.  We are limited in the number of families allowed to join us and I put together a Grab and Go craft for each child.  Please let me know by the Tuesday before Story Time, Thank you.
