HPL Children's Activities
The Children's Room is on the second floor of the library, with books, audio, and video for infants to teens. It also includes comfortable chairs for reading, tables for activities, and a selection of toys and games.
For more information about children's services call the library at 609-466-1625.
Children’s Story Time takes place each Monday beginning at 10:30 am. It is designed for children ages five and under and their companions, and includes several read-aloud stories, finger plays and often a book-related activity.
During the Fall of 2020, we will gather Mondays at 10:30 am, outdoors at the gazebo in Hopewell Park (weather permitting). Adult masks, please. Bring a towel for distanced seating. To be safe, we are limiting attendance. To reserve a spot, email email@example.com by noon on Fridays. We'll notify you by end of day Friday if we're oversubscribed.
Summer Reading Program
The Summer Reading program is designed to encourage children to keep reading during the months of school vacation. Young readers and soon-to-be readers sign a pledge indicating the number of books they would like to read (or have read to them) during the summer. There is a reward for each child who achieves his/her goal, as well as an end of summer celebration. The library offers special programs each week related to the summer reading program theme.
