While the Windsor Locks and Warehouse Point libraries offer programs and resources for residents of all ages throughout the year, this Saturday, Feb. 2, is a special day as it's Take Your Child to the Library Day (TYCTTLD).
The event was born in Connecticut as "Nadine Lipman, a children's librarian in Waterford, came up with the idea for Take Your Child to the Library Day and selected the first Saturday in February as the annual day of celebration. The idea gained popularity immediately, and librarians started planning special events, programs, and displays," according the the TTCTTLD blog.
Now, the list of participating libraries is growing and now includes 258 libraries in three countries and two Caribbean islands.
The Windsor Locks Public Library and Warehouse Point in East Windsor have regularly scheduled children's programs throughout the year.
Tikes and their parents can enjoy regular story hours, book clubs and special arts and crafts based on best selling books and their own imaginations.
And, of course, stop by and visit the children's rooms in person, curl up on a comfy chair and enjoy a book.
