There are exciting things being planned at the North Adams Public Library for children who will be attending Kindergarten this fall. Please bring your child in any time to meet the children’s librarians, get a library card, and pick out books from the “First Day of School” collection. All children who come in wearing their bright yellow “I’m Going to Kindergarten” T-shirts will be invited to pick a small treasure from the kindergarten box. On Thursday, August 24, 2006 there will be a special celebration at 6:30 PM which will include stories about getting ready for school, craft activities, drawings for raffle prizes, and refreshments. Children are encouraged to wear their beautiful yellow t-shirts and come have fun with fellow kindergartners. Questions? Call 413-662-3133.
