Children's Area

Thanks to generous contributions from the local community, the Bourbon Public Library was able to move the children's area into the remodeled and updated basement from its upstairs location in 2004. Today the children's area is a hub of activity. A small playhouse featured in the center of the room serves as entertainment for many of the area's visitors. Children also tend to enjoy the large sitting area inside the gazebo that is just their size and is an excellent gathering place for Story Time, leisurely reading, homework, and arts and crafts.

The children's area also features two Early Learning Stations. These computers are programmed and feature software that is child friendly. Kids can practice their math, art, or geography, or they can have some fun playing the many educational games. The stations are intended for use by children of 2 to 9 years of age.

Please remember that the children's area closes 15 minutes earlier than the rest of the library, so have your materials ready for check out.

Activities

DISCOVERY TIME is a chance for interactive learning with stories, crafts, sensory learning, and social engagement.  They take place every Wednesday and Thursday throughout the school year.  Wednesdays are with Miss Lindsay from 10:30-11:15am and Thursdays are from 2:00 to 2:45pm (we follow the school schedule for holidays and closings).  Children and their parents are invited to come and participate as we share stories and work on fun crafts that fit the theme of the day.

SUMMER DISCOVERY PROGRAM is a celebration of reading for all ages!  Through June and July of each year, the library brings a new reading theme to life.  There are programs and reading incentives for babies, kids, teens, and adults!
