Visit the Coeur d’Alene Public Library in your jammies during an upcoming special activity in the Seagraves Children’s Library.
PajamaRama – part of the Summer Reading Programs at the library – will be a special family night on Tuesday, July 24, 6-7:30 p.m. Participants are invited to wear their pajamas and bring their favorite teddy bear or other bedtime buddy and to enjoy stories, games and puppet shows. No registration is required.
A Digital Planetarium will be set up in the Community Room at the library, 702 E. Front Ave., Thursday, July 26, (times to be announced). Space in the portable planetarium will be limited so preregistration will be required.
The children’s library will show Mid-Week Movies on Wednesdays 1-3 p.m. beginning July 25 and continuing through Aug. 15. Films will include: “Bedtime Stories,” “The Black Hole,” “Mars Needs Moms,” and “Wall-E.”
This year’s Summer Reading theme is “Dream Big – Read.” Children can visit the library for a Reading Log and keep track of the time they spend reading or being read to. For every three hours of reading they can collect a prize at the library.
Children are also urged to vote for their school each time they visit the library to decide who will win the Summer Reading Traveling Trophy.
