Family Book Club For Grades K-5

Register using the link above! 

Here’s a spin on our library book clubs!  Read the book, Beezus and Ramonaby Beverly Cleary, at home as a family.  Each week Ms. Danielle will email participants an activity and trivia question for the week.  Send back your answers and then, after the library reopens, come to the library to receive a special prize.  An email with a reading schedule will be sent to all participants by May 25.  The book is available on Overdrive and Hoopla.

This book club will be completed at home.  After the library reopens, you may stop by the library to pick up your prize.

Build It Challenge

Earth Day LEGO™ Challenge

We may not be able to have a LEGO™ program in person, but we can still celebrate the Earth.  Take the challenge and build something out of your LEGO™ pieces.  You could build a turtle in water, the layers of the Earth, or even a wind-powered car.  Let your imagination go wild!  Then have an adult take a picture and bring it in when we re-open. We’ll put together a display of the pictures in the Children’s Room of the Valley Cottage Library so we can all enjoy your wonderful creations!


Draw It!

Author Mo Willems (Pigeon books, Elephant and Piggie) will be doing drawings daily. Follow along and bring us a picture of your drawing! We will post some of them in the library! Brought to you by the Kennedy Center. 

Found Object Crafts

AnyTime Craft Time!

Each week we will post a new craft you can do at home with everyday objects around your house. Bring us a picture of your completed craft and get a prize when we re-open! 

This week: Paper Roll Bird Feeder

Find a paper roll, use honey, peanut butter, sun butter, etc. and add some birdseed!
