Welcome to the Medway Public Library Children’s Services!
Our mission in Children’s Services is to build a worthwhile collection of books and other materials specifically for children, ages 0-12; to provide excellent programming specifically for children and families; and to be a center of learning.
The Children’s Room, located near the Main Circulation Desk, is a space for children, ages 0-12, to play, read, and learn at the library with adult supervision. While we encourage all patrons to use the materials in the Children’s Room, the space itself is reserved for kids and their parents.
Mondays- May 15th and May 22nd
We will listen to a story, play parachute games, learn new songs, strengthen our muscles, sharpen our listening skills and make a craft! Ages 2 and up.
This program is funded in part through the Walpole CFCE Program, through the Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care’s Coordinated Family and Community Engagement Grant and the Medway Public Library.
Gene Luen Yang is this year’s National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature! He is challenging all readers to broaden our horizons by reading beyond our normal comfort zones.
1. Read a book about a character who doesn’t look like you or live like you.
2. Read a book about a topic you don’t know much about.
3. Read a book in a format that you don’t normally read for fun. This might be an audio book, a graphic novel, a book in verse, a picture book, or a hybrid book.
Complete the challenge for a special spot on our bulletin board, bookmark, pin, and certificate. All ages.
