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.

Our school-year children’s programs began in October with the “bug in a rug” theatre’s “Big Blue Ball”.  It was an original musical about global folktales with timeless themes relating to the environment and diversity.

The Mad Scientists are returning on Saturday, February 18 from 10:00 – 10:45 a.m.

Learn about Fire and Ice at the Elm Grove Library’s Community Room (lower level)

Children will be dazzled and entertained as they interact with the Mad Scientists.  Foggy dry ice storms, giant beach balls floating in

the air, and even a special Mad Science “burp” potion will amaze children as they learn about chemical reactions, air pressure, and

the states of matter. All ages welcome!
