Don't miss the Bus!

Our annual "get acquainted with riding the school bus" program is tentatively set for Monday, August 4th @10am.

Kids who are entering kindergarten, along with a parent, can sign up to ride a school bus from the library to Bloomfield Elementary School. Before takeoff, the driver goes over the rules, gives kids safety suggestions, and explains what type of behavior is expected.

Once at school, we visit a kindergarten classroom and meet a teacher. Kids (and rookie parents!) can get a good idea of what goes on in school before it actually starts!

Sign-up is necessary and is limited to the first 50 riders. Call the library to sign up for this fun-filled program!
