Feb. 2 has been designated "Take Your Child to the Library Day."
The Rockville Public Library Children’s Department will be observing the event that Saturday.
It is the second-annual version of the day, which was created in Connecticut and is now a nationwide effort focused on bringing children into their local libraries and encouraging families to read together.
While visiting the library that day, children may apply for a library card and check out a book, video, magazine, or audio book.
Families who visit the library that day will receive a tote bag.
A craft workshop and face painting will be offered at the Library Annex, located next door to the Library, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
For more information, contact the Library at 860-875-5892.
