Children's Room

Weekly Story Time

Li'l Bookworms, Ages 0-4--Thursday mornings at 10 am 
For babies, toddlers, preschoolers and their parents/caregivers.  The program includes listening to stories being read, learning and singing songs, often a craft and time to play with other children.

We also host monthly field trips to the library during the school year that are enjoyed by younger students from Charlotte, Pembroke, Perry and Sipayik Schools.

Children Learn New Art Technique

In addition to listening to stories about Thanksgiving and participating in fun songs, children who attended a recent Bookmark Bunch story time learned how to use watercolor pencils by creating their own colorful turkeys. 

Pembroke Firemen Visit
October is Fire Prevention Month and in 2021 Pembroke Volunteer Fire Dept. firemen, Brent Ellinwood and Pete Hilyard, brought two of their fire trucks to visit children at the library who participate in the Friday afternoon Bookmark Bunch Story Time.  After Miss Bonnie read "The Fire Station" by Robert Munsch, the firemen demonstrated their equipment, explained the importance of a Family Fire Escape Plan and "Stop,Drop and Roll."  Everyone then went outside for a close-up view and explanation of the fire trucks.  Each child was invited to sit in the drivers seat of the big engine and pull the horn.  What fun!     

Picture Books and E-Z Readers were all relabeled to make it easier to find and replace books.  The Juvenile Fiction section now features alphabetized dividers.  Colorful signage has also been added to the walls.
