Here are some suggestions for additional activities involving libraries to support your young reader.
Visit your local public library (Canton or Plymouth libraries are both wonderful facilities) and get a library card for your child (there are no age limits but a guardian must be present). A library card is perhaps the last truly “free” gift!
Learn a new hobby! Check out books on topics that interest your child. Here are some ideas: Magic, origami, drawing, animals, fairytales. . .The possibilities are endless.!
Do you have a sports nut? Try the 700 section of the library and check out books on hockey, baseball, basketball, soccer, skateboarding or skating.
Are you going to vacation soon? The library has books on states as well as countries. Check one out before you travel.
