Cromaine District Library is a much-loved and respected tax-supported community service. A community survey conducted in November 2009 showed 94% of those surveyed consider Cromaine an important priority in our area. Whether you need a place to have a homeowners' association meeting, a chance to study for a professional exam, or some good reading, Cromaine is ready and eager to supply that need as it has since 1927.
Today at the American Library Association's (ALA) Midwinter Meeting in Atlanta, winners of the 2017 Youth Media Awards were announced. This highly anticipated ceremony grants awards in several diffferent categories to recognize outstanding contributions to children's and teen literature and media. The following list includes a few of the winners of these esteemed awards, and if you would like to see even more winners, additional information can be found here.
Calling all 7th-12th graders! Did you know that Hartland’s Cromaine Library offers programs designed with you in mind? Every Thursday, join us for a variety of different activities.
The dawn of a new year is always a time where many people think about changes they would like to make or goals they would like to achieve. For me, one such goal at the beginning of each year has always been in the form of a book challenge.
There are many different options to choose from if you are interested in pursuing a book challenge in 2017. Perhaps you have a certain number of books in mind that you would like to complete this year, or may you would simply like to read more widely. The following are just a handful of the many challenges in which you can participate.
If you are looking for some tasty treats with a fun, winter theme, check out what we made during our Tween No-Bake Treat program last week! All three treats are simple enough that children can help, too.
If your child has a hard time in large groups, struggles with joint attention, or is sensitive to sensory overload but you would still like to give them the storytime experience, please join us for Sensory Storytime! This is an interactive program that encourages participation and movement. Stories, songs, flannel boards, and props are used to engage your child in the fun, and registration is limited to twelve children and their caregivers so the environment does not become too overwhelming for attendees.
Hartland’s Cromaine Library has developed two new series of programs for a cause: Needlehearts for Charity and Cromaine Cares.
Needlehearts for Charity occurs on the first Monday of every month from 10 a.m. – 11 a.m. If you enjoy knitting, please join us as we make hats for chemotherapy and cancer patients.
