Keeping with the 2019 Earth Day theme of “Protect Our Species,” families are invited to visit Norlin Library on Bring Your Child to Work Day for a read-aloud and to explore wildlife through maps and activities.

Assistant Professor and Librarian Lindsay Roberts joins Ilene Raynes and Naomi Heiser from the Earth Sciences & Map Library to offer stories and hands-on activities. "We are especially happy to make Norlin Library more inclusive for CU community members with children and families, as well as the wider Boulder community," said Roberts.

Raynes and Heiser will bring National Geographic-themed maps, map-themed coloring pages, as well as a button machine from the Map Library.

Be sure to stop by the Children's & Young Adult Collection (CYAC) while you are visiting Norlin with your child. The small teaching and browsing collection support students in the School of Education and also children and young adults in the CU and wider Boulder communities. We focus on collecting major award-winning titles and purchase additional fiction and non-fiction materials to support the focuses of the School of Education, including books with racial and ethnic diversity, diverse gender and sexuality, disabilities or exceptionalities, and science and math books. Many working parents are unaware that the Libraries offer free delivery of requested materials to your campus mailbox---you don't have to read the same bedtime story over and over! Even if you cannot join us on this occasion, you can request children's books delivered directly to your office mailbox any day of the year!
