Have a Toddlin' Time and Super 2nd Saturday at Littlestown Library



Have a Toddlin’ Time and Super 2nd Saturday at Littlestown Library
     Summer days are quickly becoming those Good Ole Days here in Littlestown.  You know what that means … a parade full of fun floats, hot dogs in the breeze, cotton candy adrift on a stick, with fantastic fun for all.  Be there; see the large hair of our outrageously mad scientist on board the Littlestown Library float.  Applaud for our top summer readers as they share a book with support dog Meeko and her handler.   What’s this? Dogs at the library? Visit the library and Friends booth on Saturday to hear about our new fall series “Reading with Dogs”.  We thank the Friends of the Littlestown Library for their energy, enthusiasm and strong support with the fantastic float and festive booth.
     Good Ole Days roll right into school days, where more book fun awaits Alloway Creek Intermediate School students and families. Our new joint events and programs provide more ways to learn and enjoy reading at the Intermediate School and at the Littlestown Library. Families can look forward to “a book and a movie” at the library – read a book together, see the movie on our large screen wall, and agree to disagree on which is better.  Remember we’re all family here in Littlestown.
Just when the leaves change, so do our programs.  Did you miss some of our fantastic summer events?  Don’t frown, come to town!  Each month, we give you a reason to “Rise and Shine” in the morning, followed by an “Afternoon Blast” to make your day last.  Our new Super 2nd Saturday is the champion of all programs, faster than a speeding e-book, more powerful than any video game, able to leap into your imagination in a single book.  Look! Down the street!  It’s a book, it’s a game, it’s a movie, and science experiments won’t be the same.  Yes, it’s your Littlestown Library – the place to be for you and me!  Want to know more?  Come, sign-up for our September 13th kickoff of the Super 2nd Saturday events!
     What else is new, just for you? Come dance down Queen Street, or King Street, and let’s make Littlestown a toddler’s town. Starting in mid-September, bring your toddlin’ tots to our Tiny Tots Time for stories and playtime. Meet new families, make new friends and share your best tips and advice for those “terrible twos.”
     Remember, it’s you, it’s me and the whole family who make the Littlestown Library the place to be.  Come visit us at 232 S. Queen Street, Littlestown PA 17340 or give us a call (717) 359-0446.

Good Ole Days Surprises!

The 2014 Good Ole Days means fun and excitement for our patrons and families.  We'll be in the parade and at the community part celebrations.  Come see us and our surprises!

Mad Scientist, Bubbles, and Dogs in the Parade!


Thursday, August 14 @ 6-7 pm, our very own mad scientist shares her crazy bubbles, tricks and laughs on board the Friends of the Littlestown Library's float.  Be sure to watch for Ms. Valli's special wave for you!

Our "Dog Days of Summer" are so much fun that we're bringing the dogs and companions on board the float too!  Look for Meeko, her handler Wendi, and her pals as our summer reading champs read with them.

Meet Meeko , Wendi and Friends at Community Park!

On Saturday, August 16 @ 9.30 am-1.30 pm, come meet our 'read to' dogs and their handlers at the Community Park celebrations. Meeko is hoping her friend, Gambler, can tag along.  See what it's like to read your favorite book to your new furry pal.
