Taking your child to the library is always a fine idea, but it’s particularly fun on a certain day every year — Take Your Child to the Library Day.

The annual event started in Connecticut in 2012 and was the brainchild of Waterford Public Library’s now-retired children’s librarian Nadine Lipman.

Lots of area libraries are participating on Saturday. The venues and what they’ll be offering include:

Groton Public Library, 10 a.m.-noon, birthday book bash honoring Stretch the Giraffe, with activities, crafts and cake.

The Public Library of New London, 11 a.m.-3 p.m., crayon day, with arts and crafts, games and crayon-theme storytime.

The Waterford Public Library, 10:30-11:30 a.m., in “Survival in the Ice and Snow,” kids learn about native animals and how they adapted to survive in cold weather, with live animals on site.

It’s all free. For more information, see the Saturday calendar on page ---------- of this section.
