January 2014 Winter Reading Program


The magic begins when you pick up a book… and “Believe…The Magic of Fairytales”, January’s theme in the Jefferson Public Library Children’s Department.  See if you can spy Cinderella’s slipper, Ariel’s fork (hairbrush), Aladdin’s magic lamp, and more during the “I Spy” contests. 
            Children in 2nd-5th grades are invited to pick up a reading and activity packet and read about Rapunzel, Jack in the Beanstalk, and other fairy tales!  This FREE program is offered in January only!  When you complete your packet, your name will be placed in a drawing for a chance to win prizes AND a chance to join us for a Wonderland Sleepover Party at the Library!

Children 4 years-6th grades may join us for mystery movies on Wednesdays, January 15th and 29th, 3:00-4:30 p.m.  Your clues for the movies…the Mad Hatter and King Arthur!  Pre-register early!

Get your 3-6 years old child excited about books and reading with the Ready Readers Story Time.  This program will be held on Wednesdays, January 22nd through March 12th, 10:00-11:00 a.m.  While attending story time, children 6 years and younger will need a parent or responsible caregiver to remain in the building until the conclusion of the program.  A play area will be available for babies and little ones not quite ready for Story Time.
