Take Your Child to the Library Day: Party with Pete the Cat
Take Your Child to the Library Day (TYCLD) is an international initiative that encourages families everywhere to take their children to their local library. It was launched in 2011 by Connecticut librarians Nadine Lipman (Waterford Public Library, retired) and Caitlin Augusta (Stratford Library) with artist Nancy Elizabeth Wallace. TYCLD was created to raise community awareness about the importance of the library in the life of a child and promotes library services and programs for children and families. This year is the 11th anniversary of TYCLD and citizens are invited to join in the celebration.
Take Your Child to the Library Day will take place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 5. The Lawton Public Library is hosting a Party with Pete the Cat to celebrate. The fun will include a themed story time, a craft for kids to make their own groovy headband, a game to pin-the-buttons on Pete and more. Kids will also have an opportunity to have their picture taken with the rockin’-est cat around.
