Early Literacy Kits Available Now!

Thanks to a generous grant from the Allegheny County Library Association, we are proud to offer Early Literacy Kits to our youngest patrons! Each kit is available for families with infants under the age of one year. You will find books, songs and fingerplays, an egg shaker and scarf to wave, early literacy tips, book lists (available at the library!) a fashionable bib, and more. Return a second time (and sign up for a library card!) with your coupon and receive a third book!

American Girl Dolls at Bayne!

Thanks to the Allegheny County Library Association’s Youth Services, two American Girl dolls are now available to borrow! Julie is a historical doll from 1974 and Tenney was a doll of the year in 2017. You must come into the library to check them out. Check out some of the fun they had over the weekend!

The girls read a little Jane Austen…
…and they made our craft of the week – Earth Day flowers!
Their checkers game got a little heated, but they remembered it’s important to be kind.
They soaked up the sun outside…
…and had a blast swinging!

Art Cart

Stop by after school (3:15-4:30) Monday-Thursday to make some art with our new art cart, generously provided by Friends of Bayne Library!
