Take Your Child To The Library Day is an annual celebration observed on February 3 of this year. The day is celebrated on the first Saturday of February. The library would have played a considerable part in anyone’s life from childhood. The books in the library would have even helped me to understand things beyond the academic books. The pin-drop silence, the collection of books, the smell of the book, and the librarian are the best feel for anyone. Why not make your child enjoy all these and more? The day encourages every parent to take their children to the library and introduce them to the books.

“Libraries allow children to ask questions about the world and find the answers. And the wonderful thing is that once a child learns to use a library, the doors to learning are always open.” – Laura Bush

History of Take Your Child To The Library Day

The Take Your Child To The Library Day (TYCttLD) has been celebrated since 2012. The librarians Nadine Lipman and Caitlin Augusta developed this idea in December 2011. The first Saturday of every February marks this celebration Day. Nadine has come up with this celebration day to make a fun way to bring community awareness to the library in the life of a child and thereby promote the library services and programs for the children and families.

The idea soon gained popularity, and the librarians started planning special events, programs, and displays for the Day. TYCttLD is an international initiative for parents to introduce every child to the nearest local library. The library serves all the children in your community irrespective of any social and economic status.

How to Celebrate the Day

The best way to celebrate Take Your Child To The Library Day is to take your child to the nearest library. It is the sole duty of any parent to introduce his/her child to the books. Make them explore the vast variety of books, and you can even let them tell the story for you. Organize a library event on this Day and ask the children to participate. Collect the funds raised on this Day and use them for the good cause of the library. Take pictures of your children from the library and share them on social media using the hashtag #TakeYourChildToTheLibraryDay.
