This fall, we are continuing to provide at-home craft and activity kids. Sign up online to reserve your spot and stop by the Library to pick up your take-and-make! Each kit will include the materials and instructions you need for several crafts and activities related to the weekly theme, as well as items chosen specifically to help children develop age appropriate literacy skills such as letter sounds, number recognition, fine motor skills, and more.

 From January 1st to January 31st, New Cumberland Public Library will participate in Beanstack’s  Fourth Annual Winter Reading Challenge, “Books Like Us,” sponsored by Simon and Schuster. Books Like Us is a celebration of diversity, harnessing the transformative power of seeing oneself reflected in a book.  We challenge our participants to read at least 300 minutes during the month – just 10 minutes a day! - and track their reading on our Beanstack site. Visit to participate.
