Candyland is on the Storywalk!

Sat, 10/23/2021 - 11:13am -- Circulation

 

From now through October 31 play a life-sized version of Candyland at the storywalk on Bedford Village Commons. First, stop by the Children’s Room in the library to grab your playing cards and a sweet treat! Then head down to the Commons to start your game! Each player pulls a card and then moves to the page with the same color or sweet treat as your card. Don’t forget to complete the action on the page! The first player to make it to the last page wins, but watch out for pages that tell you to skip a turn.

Typically held during the last week of September, it spotlights current and historical attempts to censor books in libraries and schools. It brings together the entire book community — librarians, booksellers, publishers, journalists, teachers, and readers of all types — in shared support of the freedom to seek and to express ideas, even those some consider unorthodox or unpopular."
