Celebrate Children's Book Week by enjoying a series of digital booktalks featuring children sharing popular titles by new authors or some of your favorite classics. The purpose of booktalking is to get the people you care about to read the books you care about. Children are invited to stop by the Children's Library anytime before May 16 to record their own booktalk. Unfortunately, this program has been cancelled!

Children and their parents are invited to celebrate MoneyWi$e week. Learning how to save at an early age just makes cents (sense). We'll share some smart and fun ways children can start saving and earning money. We'll also be crafting piggy banks to store that new found wealth. If you can't make it to this program, check out some of our personal finance and money books perfect for little ones.
