Glastonbury's Welles-Turner Memorial Library Hosting "Take Your Child to the Library Day"

The Glastonbury library is holding events and games Saturday, Feb. 2, designed to introduce children to their local library.


The Welles-Turner Memorial Library Children’s Department is sponsoring the second annual “Take Your Child to the Library Day” this Saturday, Feb. 2, with concerts, movies, snacks and activities for Glastonbury children.

The annual library event was created by Connecticut’s children’s librarians, and has grown into a nationwide campaign dedicated to introducing children to their local libraries.

There will be numerous fun and entertaining events for children throughout the day at the Welles-Turner Memorial Library, according to event organizers.

  • 11 a.m.: Don Donegan presents a sing-a-long concert for children of all ages.
  • 2:30 p.m.: Families can watch a movie about “a red-headed lass who discovers the meaning of true bravery.” Popcorn will be served.
  • 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.: Arts and crafts in the Children’s Story Room.

A shadow scavenger hunt will also be taking place all day in order to introduce children and families to the resources available in the library’s Children’s Department.

No registration is needed; all the programs are free and open to the public. For more information, call the Children's Department at 860-652-7718.
