STORYTIME- Storytimes with the PCLS are FUN filled 30 minute programs that will build language, literacy and listening skills while developing a love of books, the library and the joy of reading. Craft activities will explore a variety of media. These events are recommended for children 18 months to 5 years old. All library events are FREE and registration is required ONLY for larger events.
-We want to give the tweens a place where they can have a voice! This tween advisory group is available to have members, typically around ages 8–12 (Grades 4-6), help provide input on library programming, implement programming ideas, recruit other tweens, provide order suggestions, create book lists, and provide feedback on events. This group will meet once a month at the Russellville Library. First meeting of the Sidekicks will be September 1st. at 4:30 p.m. at the Russellville Library.
VOLUNTEERS-The Children’s Department could not offer the quality of programming and activities without the overwhelming support from donations and volunteers. Volunteering at the library helps the community, builds confidence, and offers skills to add to any resume. Volunteers MUST be 14 years old! If you are interested in volunteering at the library, please return a filled out Volunteer Application Form to your PCLS branch location.
DONATIONS- The Children’s Department takes donations of craft materials, children’s books, and children’s DVDs. Any donations that CANNOT be added to and used in our collection, will be processed through the PCLS Book Store. The proceeds made from the PCLS Book Store go toward programming.
Once again, the Junior Auxiliary of Russellville has helped PCLS!! We want to give a big THANK YOU to them for their donation of a NEW Dewey Decimal Rug for the Children’s Department in the Russellville Library! If you get a chance, come by and see how great it looks!
