Storytime is BACK!

   

The storytime train is coming. Hop on board! Choo! Choo!

We are excited to begin our Fall Storytime Online series the week of September 7! Please join us for:

  • Baby/Toddler Storytime: Tuesdays, 10 a.m. (geared toward ages 0 through 2 and their caregivers)
  • Family Storytime: Wednesdays, 10 a.m. (geared toward ages 3+ and their caregivers)

Featuring stories, songs, rhymes, and more, these interactive storytimes foster of a love of reading and promote the development of early literacy skills. Storytime will take place live via Zoom—a free online and mobile video conferencing app. Registration is required. Registered participants will receive a Zoom link. During registration, participants can also choose to reserve our all-new baby/toddler storytime kit and/or family storytime kit. Each kit contains materials that will enhance your storytime experience at home. A new kit will be made available for storytime families each month during this series.

The September baby/toddler storytime kit contains a board book, scarves, bubbles, and song/rhyme sheets. The September family storytime kit contains a STEAM activity bag, scarves, and song/rhyme sheets. After you register for storytime and a kit, please contact Youth Services to arrange a kit pick-up.

It doesn’t stop there, folks! In addition to Storytime Online, we are pleased to offer Storytime OnDemand which will be available to you anytime starting Monday, September 7. You can access these videos via the Kids Page of the library website, our YouTube channel, and our Facebook page.

Tween Virtual Book Club

The year is 1912 and you are aboard the Titanic. The ship has just hit an iceberg. Will you go to the cabins or stay on deck? Will you try to find your family or will you get into a lifeboat? Will you head to the boiler rooms or the kennel?

 

YOU CHOOSE the story at our first virtual book club meeting for kids in grades 3-5 on Thursday, September 17, 2020.

ECASD's school supply drive

ECASD’s Adopt-A-Backpack

The Eau Claire Area School District’s Adopt-A-Backpack program plays an important role in getting school supplies and backpacks to students in need each year. Though this school year will be quite different, the urgency remains to help deliver supplies to Eau Claire families in need. 

To assist the Adopt-A-Backpack program, the L.E. Phillips Memorial Public Library will be collecting school supply donations inside the library’s main entrance through mid-September. You may drop off supplies Monday – Friday, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. No appointment necessary. To help guide your donation, please see ECASD’s school supply lists: https://www.ecasd.us/District/About/2020-2021-Back-to-School

Thank you!
