This week the kids can decorate snowflakes with watercolor pencils. Watch what happens when Miss Christine added water!
It has been great fun using all kinds of art supplies during the month. So much creativity and talent!

Here are more beautiful, creative snowflakes from last week. The kids used metallic markers. Thank you to everyone who is helping transform our Children's department into a winter wonderland.

Our Exploration Station now has number sequencing puzzles for the kids to enjoy. One puzzle has numbers 1-10 and the other is a bit more challenging with numbers 1-30. What pictures will the kids see when all of the numbers are in order? 🙂
Sequencing is an important concept for preschool children to develop since it allows children to recognize patterns that make the world more understandable and predictable.

I love coming here to study while waiting on my daughter to finish class but tonight there was a bunch of screaming and banging noises that made it extremely difficult to do.
Two questions: 1) Is there any other way to access the "other books you might like" feature that pops up while checking out? I have so much trouble making a list ahead of going to the library for my toddler and preschooler and end up neglecting their Lego table shenanigans while I peruse the shelves. 2) Could we build a weekly/monthly subscription box style service where we could have a book, or a few books if children's books, pulled and ready in holds based on our previously checked out books? Maybe a youth organization could spearhead it for a donated fee as a community service or something?
My 4 year old, Oliver, would like to know the library's birthday. He would like to write a book as a gift. 📗🎁
Ahoy Virginia! Looking forward to a mayhem and mirth-filled good time today, me hearties! www.mypirateschool.com
Tonight I will be breakdancing at the Cascades Library Teen Night. Come join me!
Excited to speak about one of my favorite topics and have our first workshop coming to Loundoun County! Join me and learn more on this Saturday at 1:30pm. Hope to see you there!
Are you doing Indie author day this year?
Great library! The staff are always friendly and helpful, the collection is filled with my favorite books, and the building has great space for studying or just reading. My favorite of all the Loudoun libraries.
