Does your child love graphic novels? We do too! Graphic novels are great for young minds because they reinforce language with high quality images — it engages both sides of your child’s brain!
This new group will discuss one of our favorite graphic novels each month. Join us for a lively discussion, tasty snacks, and activities that relate to each specific novel.
This month, we will discuss The Okay Witch by Emma Steinkellner.
Copies of this month’s pick will be available in the Children’s Library.

Join Ingrid Schaeffer in this theater workshop as children act out the story of Scary, Scary Halloween by Eve Bunting and Jan Brett!

Darien Library is proud to co-sponsor this event with the Darien Historical Society. Are you afraid of the dark? Join the librarians for a evening of bone-chilling stories at Darien Historical Society!
We will share the stories on the front lawn of the Bates-Scofield House Museum so please dress warmly. Don’t forget to bring a blanket and flashlight. This evening’s stories will increase in spookiness as it gets darker.
Light refreshments will be served. In the case of rain, the event will take place inside of Darien Historical Society.
