Watching with interest at Story and a Craft Time

Bridgeton Public Library

A part of the Bridgeton Free Public Library's Children's Services, the Preschool Story Time is presented every Tuesday morning at 10:30 a.m.

It is here where children from ages 2 to 6 enjoy stories, finger plays and songs, after which they participate in hands on activities and a light snack.

There is no registration required. All kids have to do is show up on Tuesday mornings with a caregiver.

Here is a link to watch a Preschool Story Time.

The Bridgeton Library's TLC, or Teen Library Council, is open to teens 12 to 19 who are interested in making a difference at the Library.  The goal of the TLC is to promote library services to teens and the community, plan programs at the library, help purchase books for the Young Adult Section -- and have a good time doing it!

Since its start in April of 2005, the TLC has helped plan several programs for teens, such as DDR events, movie nights, and book discussions.  They also planned and hosted a "Library Survivor Lock-In" for younger kids which included a scavenger hunt, relay races and Food Fear Factor!  The TLC has planned and built floats in two holiday parades and designed its own T-shirts!

Being a TLC member is not all work!  They get to attended fun workshops such as painting, creative writing and even fencing.  Sometimes they play board and video games, and once a year they take a trip to buy books for the library.  In December of 2006 they held their first sleep-over in the library!

Teens 12-19 interested in joining the TLC can call the library at 451-2620, or just come to a meeting. Meetings are held every other Wednesday from 6 - 8 pm.  New members are welcome!  The Bridgeton Library needs its......TLC!
