FREE Fun at Family Learning Day!

Although Family Learning Day is FREE for families, the Vigo County Public Library is spending a portion of its marketing budget on this sponsored post. The very best way to thank the library staff for their efforts is to attend and have fun at Family Learning Day 2023! If they ask who sent you, please tell them you heard about Family Learning Day on Haute Happenings!

Family Learning Day has quickly become a tradition for our family. It’s held during my favorite time of year (if we get lucky, the weather will be perfect for this outdoor event), and it encourages one of my favorite hobbies–reading with kids!

Family Learning Day

September 23, 2023

From 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Main Library Parking Lot

The library’s goal is to introduce hundreds of children and their families to new forms of art, music, and creative activities and experiences.

My favorite part? FREE BOOKS! In past, our older daughters have come home with new books such as The Magic Treehouse, Flat Stanley, and Cam Jansen while baby/toddler sisters walked away with beautiful picture books.

What are we looking forward to in 2023?

  • “Touch a truck” like event with a school bus and vehicles from the Terre Haute Police Department
  • Bubble Party with the ever-so-popular Foam Homies
  • Hand washing experience with the Vigo County Health Department
  • A variety of local music organizations including Terre Haute Music School, Terre Haute Symphony League, and Heartland Music.
  • SMWC will attend with their looms and adorable Alpacas!
  • New attendees such as Aris Farms who will bring a goat, llama and a special chicken!

The library says this about their event:

Every September, over 1,500 people visit Vigo County Public Library’s Main Library to connect with new organizations, learn about local resources, and enjoy time with their families—and this year promises to be the biggest Family Learning Day yet! Alongside our free books, crafts, and other activities, we’ll be hosting a Foam Homies Bubble Party, dancing with DJ Danny Wayne, and giving away two grand prizes.

This extraordinary event brings together Wabash Valley families, educators, and community partners for a celebration of knowledge, growth, and togetherness. From science experiments to artistic explorations, Family Learning Day is a vibrant tapestry of interactive, hands-on activities that engage young minds and ignite a passion for learning.

This fun event was created to promote family reading and to encourage families to learn together through enjoyable experiences. Have I mentioned it’s completely free? Now that is an event that I can happily support and promote!
