Virtual Story Time

Miss Amanda reads “Head to Toe” by Eric Carle. We are celebrating Children’s Book Week with a Story Time with some extra special library faces!

Also, stop by the library to pick up a take ‘n make kit for Story Time aged children to go along with this story time. These take home kits can be picked up inside the door with the curbside pick up books. Supplies are limited.

Children’s Book Week

The Book Hunt begins today! Stop by the library and pick up a game sheet, or download and print one out here. They can also be picked up from various locations around downtown. Fill out this game sheet by traveling around downtown Vermillion and looking for children’s book covers! Mark where you found the corresponding book on the game sheet, and turn it in to the library by November 16th to be entered to win a prize! The whole card does not need to be filled out, but every five correct answers does give you an extra entry into the contest! Celebrate #BookWeek2020 with the Vermillion Public Library!
