Melvindale Public Library has programs for children throughout the year!

Storytime

Ms. Erin, the Youth Services Librarian, has storytimes throughout the year for infants up until the age of four. The program runs from September to Decemeber, there is a small recess for the Holidays and then they resume in January through April. During May through August there are no storytimes, instead we have the Summer Reading Program that has events children can attend and even earn prizes. During storytime the Kids will hear some stories and have some play time with other children. The perfect way to get them already for bed.

Storytime will resume Mondays this Fall 2018!

Bookmark Contest

During the month of March students that attend the MEL-NAP schools in Kindergarten through Sixth grade can take part in the contest. The bookmark forms should be handed out by teachers however, additional forms can be picked up at the Melvindale Public Library. Parents should make sure the Child's name, grade, and information is on the form so in case they win we can let them know. Only use pencil when decorating, any crayons/markers/or colored ink is not permitted due to how we will print the winners bookmarks. After the forms are submitted in April by the deadline, we will announce a winner for each grade! The winners will be honored at the City Counsel meeting in May and will also get their bookmark design on the bookmarks at the Library. In addition they each will get a pack of their bookmarks to share with family and friends!

The remainder of the bookmark contestants will have their bookmarks on display for the public to see. This will run from May through August. We encourage those that applied to the contest and just regular members of the public to come on in and see the bookmarks on display. They are Fantatstic!
