Program Description

Books 'n Bites: Teacher Appreciation

May 3-9 is Teacher Appreciation Week and Children’s Book Week!

Kids who register for this month's Books 'n Bites program will be able to pick up a new book (from an assortment of 2021 children's books) to give to their teacher. The book can be picked up at Curbside Pickup from 9-11am on Tuesday, May 4. Email to make other arrangements if this pick-up window does not work or if you prefer that the Library deliver the book to the teacher of your choice on your behalf.

When we meet on Zoom, we will share what we love about our teachers and the books they've read aloud to us; we'll look at the books we will be giving our teachers; and we'll write thank you notes inside those books.

During the registration window for this program, registration can be completed online below, by calling 309.590.6155, or in person at the Children's Services Desk at the Library. As soon as registration is complete, you will receive an email with the link needed to access the online discussion.
