Library holds two weeklong children’s programs
Press Release October 25, 2000

The Newark Public Library will mark Election Day and “National Children’s Book Week” by holding two weeklong children’s programs.

It will encourage children to “vote” by holding a mock election from October 30 through November 3. Children may cast their ballots in the library’s children’s rooms systemwide.

The library will celebrate “National Children’s Book Week” (November 13-18) by encouraging children to design their own bookmarks. The theme this year is “FUEL YOUR MIND” For the bookmarks, children should design the “front” only and may use crayons or markers, little or no glitter. All bookmarks will be returned to the children.

“Designing a bookmark is a favorite activity among children,” noted Michele Cappetta, the library’s youth services coordinator. “Even though the program is open to children in grades K through eight,” she added, “high school students may join in the fun and participate.”

Branches are also planning other activities for “book week,” so patrons should call their neighborhood children’s rooms for more details.
