The Linden Hills Library wants you to know that the library is still here for you. To show their support for the community, the library has put together several fun activities and resources:
Dial-a-Story and Dial-a-Chapter
“Dial-a-Story” is a fun, low-tech way for children ages 2+ to hear a story told by their neighborhood librarian, Ms. Jessica! Please call 612-543-6830. The story will be updated weekly. And at the end of the story you can leave a message for us and we’ll get back to you!
“Dial-A-Chapter,” is for kids ages 7+. Starting May 25, dial 612-543-6828 to hear Librarian Libby read a chapter of The Trouble with Chickens by Doreen Cronin. A new chapter will be available every Tuesday and Friday.
Neighborhood Scavenger Hunt
The youngest library patrons always enjoy the scavenger hunts at the library, and while we’re closed Ms Jessica has created a scavenger hunt with images from “downtown” Linden Hills. Enjoy!
Tutorial: Online Resources for Kids
LHiNC invited LH Librarian Jessica to provide a tour of online resources that are available to children, parents, and caregivers from Hennepin County Library’s web site hclib.org. Also, learn about Linden Hills Library’s new Dial-a-Story.
Ancestry Library Edition
Ancestry Library Edition is temporarily available via the Hennepin County Library’s website. It provides access to census records, passenger lists, birth, death, marriage, and military records, and more.
If you have questions, Linden Hills Library staff are available for genealogy reference. Please call 612-543-6836, leave a message, and someone will call you back. You can also watch this Ancestry Library Edition tutorial on YouTube.
