Supplies and Materials for Children’s Programs

KidsmaterialsThe Friends support the Carmel Valley library’s homework center for students, fund programs for summer reading enrichment, and provide craft materials or games for ongoing children’s programming. Each summer the library creates interactive and entertaining programs to encourage children to read, such as creating costumes of favorite literary characters, a kids’ concert by local musician Kiki Wow, or a “Reader’s Theater” presentation of The Lorax. The long painted silk scarf that hangs in the children’s area is from one of the annual silk painting workshops funded by the Friends.
