The kids browsed and looked around on their own for a while, and then we got started on some orientation to checking out books and general library things. (What is a library? What is a library card? How do you check out books?)
I found this fun little video for the kids to watch.
After the video, we had a snack-- brownies, made for the students by Carolyn, who has been on board with the Coffman Cove Library since its inception. We then got all the kids set up with library cards and let them decorate the cards and make bookmarks. The kids all picked out a few books and got to use their new library membership to take some books home.
All in all, it was a great morning. It was wonderful to see the kids so excited about books, and it was a good way for everyone to learn about using the library.
