Take Your Child to the Library Day

Visit your public libraries on Saturday, February 1st and help celebrate “Take Your Child to the Library Day.” Now in its third year, this annual event is held nation-wide on the first Saturday in February. The event encourages people to start and/or continue the habit of taking a child to the library regularly. You’ll be amazed at how it can improve literacy and a love of learning. If you need a library card, or are thinking of getting one for your child, this is a great time to sign up.
