Fly in for Storytime!

Upcoming programs at the Allentown Public Library - week of January 19th, 2013

What are your plans Monday night?  The Allentown Public Library is hosting a Family Storytime and Craft program on Monday, January 21 at 6:30 pm.  We’ll be talking (and singing…  and rhyming…and crafting…) all about BIRDS, so “fly-in” for a fun (and FREE!) family activity! 


Our regular Storytime programs began this week, but there’s still plenty of time left to sign up for a session.  There are sessions for babies, two-year-olds, and preschoolers.  We also have started taking registrations for our Book Bunch (grades K-3), and also have spaces open in both our Young Readers Book Club (grades 4-7) and Teen Book Club (grades 6-12).  For fans of Anime and Manga, be sure to check out the Otaku Club starting in February!  For additional information (or to register) for any of these programs, please call 610-820-2400 ext. 4.


Adults:  Don’t forget to join the Adult Winter Reading Club!  There are some great prizes waiting to be awarded!  The club runs through the end of February.  Please call Sharon at 610-820-2400 ext. 2 for questions or additional information.
