On Saturday, February 1, libraries nationwide offer special activities and events for families in order to encourage library engagement and childhood reading. Take Your Child to the Library Day is celebrated across the world. The event was developed to spotlight libraries as vital community resources, and encourage families to take their children to the local library.
The Prendergast Library schedule of events includes:

The library Booksale will have half off children’s items – all children’s books will be 50 cents! This is a free event, and all ages are welcome. No registration is required.
In addition to this special event, the library has regular children’s programming including storytimes on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings at 10:30 a.m., Minecraft Club on Mondays at 3:30 p.m., and a Makerspace with STEM activities open 3:30-5:00 p.m. on Monday through Fridays.
