Berry Room Children’s Department Virtual Programs October 26-29, 2020

October 2020 in the Berry Room at the Noel Wien Public Library

The Berry Room staff misses seeing all the local families in the library, but we hope you are staying well and taking advantage of the ways you can checkout library materials (place holds with your card, fill out a Personalized Librarian Selector Service, or request a grab and go children’s book bundle), and enjoy weekly library programs virtually.

Don’t forget that the public library can support you in your school studies.


Join the Berry Room staff for our annual Halloween Howl (virtually).  Wear your Halloween costume while watching, to get in the Halloween spirit – you’ll have a howling good time!

Participate in the Books Get Our Vote program!

Vote for your favorite book character for President!

On the ballot:  Pete the Cat, Molly Mabray (Molly of Denali),
