Lemonade Day

Administrator : April 24, 2013 11:49 am : Elkhart Public Library

For one day in early May, lemonade stands will pop up all around Elkhart.  Saturday, May 4, is Elkhart’s second annual Lemonade Day.   Lemonade Day is held in communities all across the country to help kids learn how to start their own businesses.  They also learn other things, like self-confidence and skills that can help them achieve their dreams.

We have made a Lemonade Day book list especially for kids. It includes books about starting a business,  how to turn hobbies or interests into earnings, and more.  All of these books are available from the Elkhart Public Library.

For more information about Lemonade Day, and to register, visit the Lemonade Day Elkhart website. Regular updates are posted on Lemonade Day Elkhart’s Facebook page

Lemonade Day backpacks can be picked up at the following Elkhart locations:

The backpacks include the materials and information needed to set up a lemonade stand. Registration forms are also enclosed for those who have not already registered online.

AWE-some Computer in the Children’s Room

Administrator : March 8, 2013 2:12 pm : Elkhart Public Library, Home Feature

Elkhart Public Library has a new computer for kids just like you!

The Literacy Computer is for kids ages 2-8. The computer is equipped with a touchscreen, a mouse, and a color-coded keyboard. It has over 60 games that kids will love. You don’t even need a library card to get on.

You can play Diego’s Safari Rescue, JumpStart Learning, Kid Pix 3D, Sesame Street, and many other games with your favorite characters. All the games on the computer help with skills like math, reading, and science and you’ll have lots of fun too. Come to the library to try it out today. Just come to the Children’s Desk to ask for the day’s password.

This project is supported by the Institute of Museums and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act, administered by the Indiana State Library.
