Children's Programs


La Conner Regional Library is committed to bringing quality programming to the children of our area.  Our Children’s Specialist, Susan Seefeldt is an integral part of our library community.

Summer Reading is a vital part of our programming.  Every teacher will tell you that they can tell which students have spent time reading over the summer months.  Those who have not read or been read to for three months will almost surely lose academic ground.  Because of this need, we participate in the Collaborative Summer Library Program each year.  The youth services departments of all the public libraries in Skagit County work together to bring in fun and interesting programs and projects to entice families into the libraries. In La Conner, we hold weekly prize drawings for participants to encourage even the most reluctant readers to join in.

Another way to engage readers: audiobooks and ebooks available for checkout online...

Washington Anytime Library for Kids (OverDrive)

Our other annual events include a Holiday Family Night held during the school’s vacation time.  We get the entire family involved with crafts, singing, playing games and reading (of course).  We hold a Children’s Tea each summer, which is open to children and their chaperones.  Signing up ahead of time is a must due to space issues. Who doesn’t like to get to play dress-up and have a for-real tea party?

And, of course, we hold Story Time each Friday morning at 10:30.  We welcome babies through pre-school aged children and their care-givers.  Come each week or drop in when you can. The more the merrier!  Activities are adapted on the spot to fit those present.  Singing, dancing, finger plays, tickling games (for babies), books, baby-signing and bubbles keep us busy for the half-hour session.
