Winter Break Week at your library

Join us for a flurry of fun at the library December 20-31! Visit us online or at the library during Winter Break Week for a blizzard of activities including Pajama Storytime Online, Family Bingo Online, scavenger hunts, Take and Make activity bags (while supplies last), and more.

All week long, the Youth Services division will offer take & make activity bags (while supplies last) and scavenger hunts in-library, and more!

On Tuesday, December 28, join us on Zoom for Pajama Storytime Online at 6:30 p.m. Be sure to snuggle up in your snazziest PJs! This Storytime will feature bedtime stories, songs, and all the Storytime fun you’ve come to expect. Register here to receive the Zoom link.

But, wait, there’s even more!

Celebrate the New Year at home with bingo! On Friday, December 31, we’re offering Family BINGO Online, 1-2 p.m., on Zoom. All materials and prizes provided, while supplies last. Registration is required to receive the Zoom link and a BINGO bag. BINGO bags may be picked up from Youth Services. Register here!

And, of course, we always offer books, movies, video games, maker kits, and so much more, so stock-up for chilly weather and family time. Be sure to stop down – we’re always happy to see you!

Audiobook Explosion!

I don’t know about you, but I LOVE a good audiobook. And now the library has even more ways to enjoy your favorites (or soon-to-be favorites) on audio.

Playaways®

Playaways are audiobooks pre-loaded onto a handy little device (about the size of a deck of cards). All you need is a battery and a pair of earbuds/headphones to listen. Check out all the juvenile and teen titles available in our library catalog here.

Wonderbooks®

Wonderbooks are print books with a built-in audiobook component. Inside the front cover is an attached audio device which reads the book aloud. These may be listened to via the built-in speaker or with headphones. Perfect for children that like to listen and read along with the text. Check out the juvenile titles available here.

VOX™ Books

VOX™ Books capture children’s attention by combining a book into an all-in-one read along. Like Wonderbooks, inside of the front cover is an attached audio device which reads the book aloud; simply push a button to listen. These are great for pre-readers, emerging readers or even seasoned readers! Check out the collection here.

Questions on Playaways®, Wonderbooks®, or VOX™ Books? Let us know at 715-839-5007 or ysstaff@eauclaire.lib.wi.us. We’re always happy to help!

Whether you’re looking forward to November 20-27 with joy in your heart or with trepidation, be sure to stop by your library for a feast of fun activities during our special Thanksgiving Break Week.
