The Poland library had a springtime celebration called “Spring Things” on March 24 in their meeting room.

The children’s program featured a story time and craft activity. Poland librarian Amanda Koller organized the event to occur following the Easter egg hunt at town hall across the street.

Koller read two stories to the children, “Hurray for Spring” by Patricia Hubbell and “Charlie Chick” by Nick Denchfield and Ant Parker. Following the stories, Koller led the children to a fun dance.

Then, the children did their craft. Koller based the craft on Denchfield and Parker’s story. They made their own “Charlie Chick” using paper plates, construction paper and glue. The children could also fill out Easter-related coloring sheets that the library provided for them.

The library’s children’s programs often includes a literacy element and hands-on instructions. They also try to have programs when town hall has an event, so families can have an opportunity to enjoy both.
