BE KIND… That’s been our motto around here the past year. So, when we saw that the Carteret County Library in Newport had the same idea, we had to check it out. They have several things going on for kids and adults. For kids and adults, they have hand chosen books that they thought helped promote kindness throughout the community and ways you can be kind to people. What they also did for the kids was they found a book called “The Fairy Friendship.” Kids can go to the library, get this free book and take a journey while you read your new book. The journey takes place inside the library and an interactive center afterwards. Get up, read a book and have some fun.
The library has had to adopt to the times as well but they are open and ready for you to check out a book. If you go to the Newport Branch and they don’t have a book you want, just ask and they will look it up for you as they are connected to other libraries in the state. If they can find it, they will order it for you. They have dropped all late fees as of late, they just ask that you bring back the book.
Don’t forget about following the on Facebook as they have information for upcoming events and story time with Ms. Libby.
The pandemic has forced us to entertain ourselves in ways we never thought we would have to and reading is one of them. So, head on over to your local library and bury your nose in a book this weekend.
