Children's Story Hour
Every Wednesday, 10:00-11:00 a.m.
The Gilpin County Public Library offers a STORY AND CRAFT HOUR aimed at pre-schoolers (and a little older too, when school is not in session.) Deb Benitez, our Children’s Clerk, entertains with stories and follows them up with a craft project or two. Come join the in-crowd of toddlers and their parents and/or guardians. There are special story hours at holiday time and we always get a visit from Santa for our special Christmas program. No need to sign up in advance, just feel free to join us.
Summer Reading Program
Our Summer Reading Program for kids from pre-school to third grade is a winner every year. It usually runs for 10 weeks, with weekly prizes offered to everyone who reads at least one book per week. We fill the display case in the lobby with toys and goodies, and let each child choose their own reward for reading in the program. The Summer Reading Program ends with an exciting
ICE CREAM PARTY on the final Saturday, during which those who attend get to sign up for GRAND PRIZE DRAWINGS. This is our most successful (and fun) program for kids!
