D&D Library Talk: Episode Nine: Making Your RPG Family Friendly

Wednesday, September 15, 2021
D&D Library Talk
Virtual
D&D Library Talk is our podcast on the ins and outs of RPG systems, like Dungeons and Dragons! We talk about how to make sure everyone enjoys the game, whether as a player or game master. In Episode Nine we talk about how to design fun and engaging RPG games for tweens and families. We are joined by Children's Librarian, and D&D enthusiast, Kim Baker as we discuss campaign design and system choice, best practices when leading RPGs for tweens, the social and emotional learning benefits of RPGs, and how to set everyone up for success when playing these games.

Age 12 and up. Access archived and future podcasts and resources on our D&D Library Talk webpage.

1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

Friday, December 31, 2021
1,000 Books Before Kindergarten
All Branches

1,000 Books Before Kindergarten is a program encouraging you to read 1,000 books with your child before they start kindergarten. The program is self-paced and you decide how often and how long you will read to your child. It can take anywhere from a few months to a few years. When you register for the program, you can come pick up a welcome packet, including a finger puppet and physical reading logs to color in! There will also be occasional surprises throughout the game, like stickers, a halfway-there certificate, and more (you can even earn a happy dance with a librarian)! When you finish the program, you’ll receive a graduation certificate, an invite to a quarterly themed storytime, a free book, and a farm friend adoption kit (just a stuffie, not a real one). Sign up online.
