1-2-3, Play with Me! - Family Place Library

Spring is here!!! Isn't it beautiful outside! With Spring comes a lot of great events at the Columbus-Lowndes Public Library.

The 1-2-3, Play with Me! Program started today! We had a great turnout! 31 kids! THIRTY-ONE KIDS! Awesome! It was so fun too, lots of faces from the Fall session, but lots of new faces too! I can't wait to get to know all of you! The program did so well in the Fall that instead of having just one session this Spring we are doing two! Group 1 meets on Tuesdays and Group 2 meets on Wednesdays. Both groups are completely full to capacity! I am beyond excited about this, I am really happy that the program has done so well and I am so grateful for all of you wonderful momma's and daddy's that have told your friends and their friends about the program. You made it a success!

Some other things coming up at the library include the SUMMER LIBRARY PROGRAM! We have a little bit of something for everyone! Mother Goose will be holding a children's SLP every Thursday from June 3rd until June 24th! This will be for children ages 2 to 5. The big kids SLP will be held at different locations during June and July. Kids ages 6 to 12 can attend programs in Artesia on Tuesdays from June 1st to June 22nd, in Caledonia on Thursdays from June 3rd to the 24th, in Crawford on Wednesdays from June 30th to July 21st and finally in Columbus on Tuesdays from June 29th to July 20th. Now that the kids are covered we cannot forget about YOU, the parents and grandparents! The library is also having an Adult SLP! The dates are Tuesdays from June 1st to the 22nd. Once more information is available I will provide that for you! If you have any questions about these events please let us know!

Hope you all have a wonderful day!

Fun Stuff

Hi everyone!

The Christmas and New Year's Holiday's have begun! Many of you parents are wondering what to do with your children during their two weeks of fun and freedom. The weather is kind of chilly and you might not want to get out to much so here are some things you can either try at home or try at your Columbus-Lowndes Public Library!

1. Christmas Tree Tour - Did you know that the Columbus-Lowndes Public Library has over 20 decorated Christmas trees up? Come by and see all of the beautiful trees and decorations, or you can watch a slideshow of all the trees on the website!

2. PBS KIDS! - Do your kids like Dinosaur Train? The Electric Company? Super Why? Check out PBS Kids for some awesome games related to the hit shows!

3. Books! (online) - Did you know that you can read a lot of public domain books for free through the Google Reader Application? A lot of wonderful Fairy Tales can be found on here and they include the full story with pictures. If you don't want to get out in the cold you can snuggle up by the computer and still read a book together.

4. Dial-A-Story - Call 662-329-5313 for a wonderful Christmas Story.

5. Teen Center - If you have a teen that is bored at home, why not come by the library and check out the new teen center. Ages 13 to 19 only! We have a Wii and a Xbox 360. Come get your game on!

6. VISIT THE LIBRARY! - We have books, books, and more books!

Hope you all have a great holiday season!
