Take Your Child To The Library Day is an annual celebration observed on February 1st of this year. The library would have played a considerable part in anyone’s life right from their childhood. The books which are in the library would have even helped to understand things beyond the academics books too. 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? Take Your Child To The Library 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 in celebration since the year 2012. The librarians Nadine Lipman and Caitlin Augusta have come up with this idea during December 2011. The first Saturday of every February marks this celebration Day. Nadine has come up with this celebration Day as to make a fun way to bringing the community awareness to the library in the life of a child and thereby promoting the library services and programs for the children and families.
The idea has soon gained the popularity, and the librarians started planning the special events, programs, displays for the Day. TYCttLD is an international initiative for the parents to introduce every child to the local nearest library. The library serves all the children in your community irrespective of any social and economic status.
