Children’s Room

Welcome to the Ivoryton Library Children’s Room!

Although I am not able to physically be with you during this time, I am 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 you completed lists of 100 books and when the library reopens for patrons prizes will be awarded. ebartlett@ivorytonlibrary.org

Wishing everyone health, happiness and safe distance adventures!

Kindest Regards,
Ms. Elizabeth

Kate Messner reads Up in the Garden Down in the Dirt

 

UPCOMING ZOOM READ ALONG!  June 16th 9:30 am

This companion book to the Felicity series features Felicity’s best friend, Elizabeth Cole, an English girl from a prominent Loyalist family. The girls’ favorite pastime is teasing Elizabeth’s annoying sister, Annabelle. When Annabelle becomes engaged, Felicity and Elizabeth prove that they are the merriest mischief-makers in Virginia. The book includes a nonfiction “Looking Back” essay focusing on courtship and marriage customs of the eighteenth century.

 

From Story Time to gardening to periodic programs,
we have a lot of fun at the library.

Here are some favorite moments.
