Spend some family time together at the Wellfield Botanic Gardens We will meet in the English Cottage Garden on the 3rd Tuesday of each month, May through August, from 6:00-6:30 p.m. (In case of rain we will meet in the tented area.) A staff member from Elkhart Public Library will share stories and songs and lots of fun. Tuesdays are free at the Wellfield, so you will not have to pay to get in. Bring the whole family and a blanket to share. If it rains, the Wellfield will have a tent for shelter.
April Fisher’s school assignment was to make a video for elementary-age students who have never been to, or borrowed from a library. She was asked to demonstrate library services and materials that are available to children in their age group.
Since April’s family moved to Elkhart County about 5 years ago, she has been visiting all EPL locations. She especially likes her Cleveland Branch. It shows in her impressive YouTube video!
Elkhart Public Library has a new computer for kids just like you!
The Literacy Computer is for kids ages 2-8. The computer is equipped with a touchscreen, a mouse, and a color-coded keyboard. It has over 60 games that kids will love. You don’t even need a library card to get on.
You can play Diego’s Safari Rescue, JumpStart Learning, Kid Pix 3D, Sesame Street, and many other games with your favorite characters. All the games on the computer help with skills like math, reading, and science and you’ll have lots of fun too. Come to the library to try it out today. Just come to the Children’s Desk to ask for the day’s password.
This project is supported by the Institute of Museums and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act, administered by the Indiana State Library.
