Libraries throughout Connecticut and in over 30 other states will participate in a fun-filled day focused on children.  At the Mark Twain Library, this day-long Saturday, Feb. 2, celebration will include festivities and activities for children of all ages.

Throughout the day there will be an ongoing book-based scavenger hunt for children and parents.  Families will be greeted with balloons from Huck the Frog and can color pictures of their favorite children’s books while snacking on cocoa, juice, and cookies.  Children can add their handprint to a mural, and play with jigsaw puzzles or storybook Scrabble.

The day will begin at 10:00 with Music and Movement for babies to five-year-olds. This will be followed by Storybook Art, Winter Crafts, and a Valentine’s Day program for preschoolers – elementary school children.

At 12:30, Riverside Reptiles visit for a “Meet the Snakes” program.  There will be lots of snakes to meet and touch, including a boa constrictor.

To finish off the day, kids in third-eighth grade can try their hand at making crafts with duct tape, such as a phone case, wallet, or jewelry.  There will be a ‘tween yoga class at 2:30 with Redding yoga teacher Laura Falasco.

Registration is requested for these programs.  Please call the library at (203) 938-2545 or visit the Mark Twain Library’s website to sign up for some or all of these events.
