Children's Book Week is May 2-8
The library will be sponsoring a bookmark contest! Everyone age 3-11 is invited to enter. We will have bookmark forms for you to pick up at the library or create your own form, approximately 2 ½ “ by 7”. Design a bookmark with the theme of reading and the joy of books. Winners will be chosen for the following age groups: 3-5, 6-7 and 8-11. Entries are due by 5 pm, Thursday, May 31. Have fun!
Teen volunteers between the ages of 12&19 are needed to make this program a success. You will be taking pictures of the kids in superhero poses and distributing special FCBD comics.
If you like being ‘large and in charge’ contact Kendra to schedule a two or three hour shift between 10am and 5pm. Back to the Past Comics & Collectibles once again generously donated these comics for distribution.
Saturday, May 7, 10am-5pm
Kids ages 3-19 are welcome to visit the youth department and pick one free comic. For added fun, pose for your own super hero photo to be displayed in the library! (Costumes are encouraged but costume accessories will be provided for the photo.) These special free comics are generously supplied by Back to the Past Comics & Collectibles on Inkster Road in Redford.
