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.
Lemonade Day backpacks can be picked up at the following Elkhart locations:
- Elkhart Public Library, 300 S. Second St.
- Big Brothers Big Sisters of Elkhart County, 9029 CR 13
- Boys & Girls Club of Elkhart: 131 E. Franklin St.
- Concord Mall Information Desk: 3701 Main St.
- YMCA of Elkhart County, 200 E Jackson Blvd.
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.
