Children's Book Week

In celebration of Children's Book Week, (November 15 - November 20) the San Marino Public Library will be asking all children to help contribute in building a library bookworm. For each book read, the child will come into the library and fill out form that will represent a piece of the bookworm's body. This "body piece" includes the name and age of the child along with the title and author of each book read. Each piece will then be added to the bookworm in an effort to see how long the bookworm will grow by the end of Children's Book Week. Children can begin helping the library bookworm grow on Monday, November 1st.

New Reference Material @ the San Marino Public Library

In an effort to assist younger children with their research needs, the San Marino Public Library recently purchased a new set of encyclopedias, "The New Book of Knowledge". These encyclopedias are specifically geared towards younger researchers beginning from grade 3 and up. And it has long been the leading source of accurate, accessible, and fun-to-read information. With its thousands of articles, written by over 1,880 authoritative contributors, and many special features, "The New Book of Knowledge" has been consistently judged the best in its class.
