The importance of developing good reading habits at an early age is well known.  Getting children familiar with and used to going to the library can lead to a life-long reading habits that yield countless hours of growth, learning and entertainment.

The Friends of the Elm Grove Library purchases books. audio-visual and electronic materials for youth and young adults.  Donations from FOEGL help the library offer many programs and activities year-round, including the summer reading program.

Plus FOEGL hosts its own school-year children’s programs.

In October, actors from the “bug in a rug” theatre presented the “Big Blue Ball”.  It was an original musical about global folktales with timeless themes relating to the environment and diversity.

In February, The Mad Scientists demonstrated the powers of Fire and Ice.  120 children and adults were awed.

In April, FOEGL held a “Poetry and Pizza” celebration.  The evening combined a jazz band, Comedy Sportz, original poetry and free pizza.

During the summer, the children’s program committee plans for the next year.  If there is a topic you would like to see presented at a children’s program, please let us know.  We always welcome your suggestions.
