Preschool Storytime: Join us on Tuesdays 11:15 to 11:45 a.m.
Storytime leader Chatral A’dze welcomes children ages 2 to 5 to hear stories, sing songs and play games. As a library volunteer, Chatral enjoys sharing the stories and songs taught to her by her mother and finding new library books for young children. Her lively readings and energetic circle games create an atmosphere of fun in which children enjoy listening to stories and interacting with each other. Parents/caregivers and siblings are welcome to participate in the games and to explore the resources the library has to offer.
Monday Afternoon Book Club at the Library
Calling 3rd to 5th graders! The Monday Afternoon Book Club needs you. We have a great time every Monday from 3:00 to 4:00 listening to, reading and talking about stories and books. We are taking turns reading Pippy Longstocking now and will soon share stories from Alice in Wonderland and then go see the movie at Bethel Woods. Ms. Lena Lundquist is our leader and Ms. Val Taggart helps us make amazing craft projects to go with the stories. Ms. Carol Christensen reads to us and makes delicious snacks. We would like more kids to join us, so please call the library to let us know you will be stopping by to check out the Monday Afternoon Book Club!
