The 18 winners gather at the party Nov. 18.
A party crowned the celebrations of Children’s Book Week 2005 from Nov. 14 to 18, sponsored by the H. Leslie Perry Memorial Library, but participants enjoyed a wide variety of activities throughout the week. Elementary-age children and parents learned and grew with Monday’s tour of the Youth Services Department, made rebus posters on Craft Day, were introduced to some of the great books that never make it to the Accelerated Reader lists Wednesday, and even helped with Thursday’s Time for Tots storytime. A total of 55 kids came throughout the week, and 18 were awarded with games and free books at Friday’s party. Both children and librarians can’t wait until next year with the opportunities that will come with the new library.
