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.

On September 30, Mad Science will present “Up, Up and Away” – a spellbinding even to introduce children to the principles of air and pressure.  Think Hot air balloons, Vortex generators – and a hovercraft.

Other sure-to-please programs will be offered during the school 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.
