Take Your Child to the Library Day (TYCLD) takes place on the 1st Saturday of February in libraries throughout the US and Canada.
Parents are encouraged to visit the public library with their children to participate in special events and learn about all the wonderful materials and services the library has to offer for families.
Launched in Connecticut in 2012, Take Your Child to the Library Day has blossomed into an international celebration with nearly 1,200 participating libraries from 49 states and 5 countries. The brainchild of retired Waterford children’s librarian Nadine Lipman, the event was developed to spotlight libraries as vital community resources that enrich, educate and entertain – and to encourage families everywhere to take their children to their local libraries.
Children’s book illustrator/author Nancy Elizabeth Wallace of Branford created the event’s now iconic artwork showing a family of bunnies heading to the library. The statewide nonprofit Connecticut Library Consortium, which coordinates the event, reports that nearly every town in Connecticut hosted free activities for families during last year’s celebration.
TYCLD raises community awareness about the importance of the library in the life of a child, and promotes library services and programs for children and families.
