From the beauty of words to the beauty of the world around is, there's a lot to celebrate with your kids this week--and a lot of fun activities to keep everybody busy!
What We're Reading
One of the things we miss most about being in the library is chatting about books with all of you! We wanted to share what we're reading right now, and would love to hear what you and your family are reading: send us an email to let us know!
All of our current reads are on OverDrive! Click on the title to start reading, or to place a hold.
Ignayra is back with another Spanish read-aloud, and she's reading one of our all-time favorites.
Wellness is so important for the entire family right now, so we are thrilled that Joy hosted another session of Family Yoga Time!
Looking for a book to read? We can't wait to read The Lost Girl, one of Kevin's favorite books last year. What happens when twins are separated in school for the first time at the precise moment their city starts to get a little...strange? Listen to Kevin's booktalk and click here to place a hold in OverDrive.
Did you know we're on TikTok?! Ignayra took the plunge and now there's another place to follow our Children's Room fun! Join us and follow @oplkidsand watch our first video here.
Earth Day is April 22
This Wednesday is Earth Day, and we have some ideas for celebrating as a family, from walks and bike rides to making crafts out of recycled goods.
