Going Buggy




The summer of 2008 saw bugs invading the Reston Regional Library. Fortunately, they were the nicest kinds of bugs to have -- bugs in books. Wait.  That doesn't sound right either.  Okay, they weren't the kind you have to fumigate for, but the kind you read about! Once again, one of our talented library staff members put together an enchanting program for the young ones of Reston as you can see from these photos.

What are some of kids' favorite books about insects?
  • Miss Spider's Tea Party (and the other Miss Spider Books)
  • Eric Carle's The Hungry Caterpillar, The Grouchy Ladybug, The Very Lonely Firefly, The Very Quiet Cricket, The Very Clumsy Click Beetle
  • Bugs are Insects
  • Big Book of Bugs
  • Magic School Bus Inside A Beehive, Butterfly & the Bog Beast, Spins a Web (okay, they're arachnids, not insects)
Promoting literacy in a captivating way is a big part of being a children's librarian.  Lucky for our patrons, Reston Regional Library has the some of the most creative children's librarians in the system. The Friends of Reston Regional Library strive to make it possible for them to have all the resources they need in order to make the connection with local children. The goal of course is to raise another generation of readers. YOU are an essential part of that process.  Your donations, your purchases, and your kind words all contribute to making the Childrens' Programs at Reston Regional Library a huge success.
