Welcome to The Worlds of Wonder!

Welcome to the Worlds of WonderAs you walk through the front doors of the library, the children’s department is located through the giant Storybook directly on your left. Inside you will get lost in your imagination and find many things to read and fun things to do. We hope you visit us soon!

 

 

 

Due to COVID-19, we will be hosting Virtual Summer Reading Programs using Facebook Live. 

Tell a Tale is a fun Virtual Video Program with Miss Mack that includes flannel-board stories, songs and finger-plays. Each week children will pick up a bag at the library that will either contain a gift or a craft that relates to the story of the week. Bags are limited to the first 20 children that register and will be distributed the day before the program begins. Register on Beanstack or call the library at 798-3430.

 

Ranger in Time is a fun Virtual Video Program for children ages 7-9. Children’s author, Kate Messner, will read chapters from her time travel story about Ranger and the Oregon Trail.  Each week children will pick up a bag at the library that will contain props to go along with the story. Bags are limited to the first 20 children that register and will be distributed the day before the program begins. The first bag will contain a copy of Kate’s book and craft.

Fairytale Feasts is a weekly virtual storytelling program for ages 5-7 with Miss Mack. Each week children will pick up a bag at the library that will contain props to go along with the story.

If the Medina Schools are closed, will storyhour be cancelled?

Yes, storyhour will be cancelled if the schools close. If schools are not closed, but Miss Mack feels it is necessary to cancel storyhour, a call will be made at least one hour before storyhour is scheduled to begin.

Does my child need a library card to take books out of the library?

Yes, your child must have a library card to take books out of the library. If he/she does not have one, please fill out an application at the front desk before the start of storyhour. The first day of storyhour is quite hectic and it is a great help to desk staff if cards are issued in advance. Your child’s library card will be kept at the front desk for the entirety of the program.

 

Can I suggest events for the library?

Yes, just fill out our survey and let us know.
