Welcome to our Children’s Department
My name is Thomas Holmes, AKA The Great Baldini, a magician from Rhode Island. I just completed an hour long Imagine Your Story video, made for children which will make everyone smile. My goal is to bring as many smiles as I can to everyone during this time of quarantine. This video is unlisted on my YouTube channel. I want to give this Link to all the Massachusetts libraries for free so they can share the smiles with all their children.

The Children’s department of the Adams Free Library is a welcoming place where the love of learning and reading is furthered through early literacy, critical thinking and information-seeking. With that in mind we offer a wide assortment of high quality educational programs all year long. Each year we run a Summer Reading Program, weekly story times, special guest presentations, performances, and more.

Experts suggest that “the single most important activity for building the knowledge required for eventual success in reading is reading aloud to children. This is especially so during the preschool years,” says the report Becoming a Nation of Readers.
“Neurons develop in the first three years of life, where learning begins and the first five years of life is the most important for learning”
“Reading to your child remains the single most effective way to prepare your child to become a successful reader”
