Book & Craft-to-Go!

A book with a craft-to-go makes for a great book extension activity.  Books are tools that help children build a foundation of understanding on a wide variety of concepts and themes.  Having a craft pertaining to the theme of a book makes it even more memorable to them.

Program Instructions:

  • You will find the Themed Book Display located under the stairs in the Children’s Department.  You may also select your own books related to the chosen theme.
  • Come to the Children’s Desk and check out a book correlating to the current theme.  If you use the self check-out, bring your receipt to the Children’s Desk to get your craft-to-go.
    • You will only need to check out 1 themed book to receive the craft.  You will only receive one craft per child.

The current theme is THANKSGIVING.  Crafts are available while supplies last.  They are only available at the Children’s Desk when the desk is staffed.
