School’s in session!
Sometimes you can actually hear that collective cheer from parents on the first day of school. I was not one of those parents but I did know how to appreciate some quality alone time or “me time” and I still do enjoy it. There is a never ending list of things that can fill your day and perhaps we can help you out with some of your chores. No, we do not dust or do windows but we can share some of our ideas with you. The Library now has a Pinterest account and we have begun creating some wonderful boards with resources for everyone.
One chore we can assist with is mealtime. Now that the children are back in school, packing lunches becomes a morning chore… perhaps even before you have that first cup of coffee! Gasp! Check out our Kid’s Cuisine board for brown bag ideas and some fun after school snacks.
We also have boards for costumes ideas, science experiments, and cool things to make. Need some suggestions for books? No problem we have a number of boards dedicated to helping you find something good to read. And we’ll be adding more content and new boards as time allows.
New in town? Check out our Staycation board for some great ideas on getting to know Naperville and the surrounding community.
Here’s a common scenario in many homes with school age kids. So it’s Saturday morning and you find out from your child that they have some serious homework to be done and that they have left their textbook in their desk or locker at school. Well, I’d like to share a little secret with you…Naperville Public Library has a copy of each Naperville School District 203 textbook! These titles are provided by Naperville School District 203 and cannot be checked out by patrons. You can make copies of pages to take home with you or you can find a quiet area and finish the homework during your visit with us. We should have a copy of each textbook from grade K through grade 12. I wish I would have known about this little nugget of information when my sons were in school.
I hoped I have helped you out today and provided you with some helpful inside information. Remember you can text, email, visit, or call us. We are always happy to help you.
By the way, our regular storytimes begin on September 4th at all three of our buildings and we look forward to seeing you soon.
