Today the Tottenville Library on Staten Island had a Valentine's Day Celebration for lil' ones of all ages. Toddlers of three and pre-teens of twelve were welcomed into the library to celebrate all the love that Valentine's Day brings. With a library filled with stories of love, where better to spend the afternoon! Some of our favorite children's books for Valentine's Day are Happy Valentine's Day, Mouse! and Junie B. Jones and the Mushy Gushy Valentine. How could you not love these children's books! While spending the afternoon surrounded by moms dads and other lil' friends, kids could make their own candy necklaces and enjoy the magic of the library.
If you're still looking for a V-Day activity for the kids, the Ottendorfer Library is having a Hearts and Flowers afternoon where heart-warming stories will be read to the lil' ones while they make exciting pop up cards. Keep an eye out at New York Public Library's website for more upcoming events at other public libraries all over the greater NY area. Don't forget to follow them too @nyplkids!
