Partnering with The Cincinnati Enquirer and other libraries in the greater Cincinnati area, Boone County Public Library will offer a storytime for children of all ages at noon on Wednesday, August 10, at the Main Library, 1786 Burlington Pike, in Burlington, in an effort to set a Guinness world record for the world’s largest storytime. Don’t be late, though! The record setting will start exactly at noon, when we break out the classic Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin. Stick around for other stories read and told by our library staff, along with rhymes and songs. Don’t forget your camera! Tales, the Library Dragon will be making a special appearance, ready for high fives and silly photos!
In honor of their 175th anniversary, The Cincinnati Enquirer is striving to combat illiteracy in surrounding communities. Join arms with the greater Cincinnati area and the Enquirer by doing your part to help them reach their goal of 17, 500 volunteer hours, 17, 500 donated books, and a record-breaking number of storytime participants. All donated books will be given to the children in need within your community.
There will be donation boxes at all BCPL locations. Thank you for donating a gently used book; we look forward to redistributing them to the kids in Boone County who need them.
We look forward to seeing you at the Main Boone County Public Library on August 10 at 12 p.m. sharp. Make sure you come ready to have fun!

She loves working in a library with so many kids — storytime is her favorite part of the day.
