BLANKET FORT

Blanket forts and pillow forts are a sleepover classic! Let your child create a “fortress of solitude” on their own for reading, telling scary stories or for cozy cocooning, or hold a construction contest at the next sleepover. Either way, building a blanket fort is fantastic fun! Email us a picture of your fort or put a picture with your child's name in the book drop.

STORY WALK

Take a StoryWalk® and enjoy reading and the outdoors at the same time. Laminated pages from a children's book will be placed around Prospect, starting at the library's outdoor bulletin board next to the door facing Main Street. As you stroll through town, you'll be directed to the next page in the story. There are fun activities on the reverse side of the sign to do while walking. Take note of the hidden letter in the storybook pages at each stop. At the end, unscramble the letters for your keyword. Email or call the library with the keyword to get a $1 off coupon at Shmily's for each child participant.
