Storytime/Circle Time Tips and Tricks!
October 11th from 6pm – 8pm
Early educators, daycare providers, and preschool teachers can attend this program run by Children’s Librarian Clare Dombrowski to get some new ideas to use in reading and circle times. Hear about the Whole Book Approach developed by the Eric Carle Museum, see how to incorporate sign language, puppets, and other techniques into reading, see how Mother Goose on the Loose can engage even the youngest child with songs and rhyme. Find out about the resources provided by the library.
This will be held at the library and certificates can be provided. A goodie bag to take home will also be provided so please register so we know what to prepare!

We offer tours for your classes and preschools. We can do a quick overview of the layout of the library and our rules or in-depth explanation of our computer catalog. We can also do book talks, read a story, or add other components upon request. Please contact the children’s librarian to schedule.
Teacher Resource Collection
The library has a special collection for teachers that offers resources on various topics including special needs, behavior issues, educational activities, curriculum ideas, and many others resources. It is located upstairs in the children’s room.
We can do a special storytime for your class, the librarians’ schedule permitting. We can do it as part of a tour or as a separate program. We love to have you visit us, but we can also bring the library to you. With prior arrangement with the children’s librarian, we can also do a special storytime or presentation in your classroom. Please contact the children’s librarian to schedule.
Teacher Book Bags
Teachers and homeschoolers in Amesbury can request a book bag (if you live in Amesbury but teach elsewhere or teach in Amesbury but live elsewhere, you still qualify!). It can be on any topic you need and includes up to 25 books. Bags are checked out for a six week period and are non-renewable.
The children’s staff is happy to put together the bag for you, but needs at least a week’s notice to complete a bag. Please email, call or stop by with your request.
You can email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (978-388-8148 x618) to order a bag. Please order a week before it is needed. If you need it more quickly, please call us directly and we will try to accommodate you.
