Field Trip Day! Our library welcomed 4 classes of 6th grade PBL students as part of their Walking Tour this morning. They learned a bit of library history, trekked through the stacks, said hello to the bear, performed with puppets, looked for their favorite books, and created beautiful designs for our Magical Magnetic Wall. Thanks for stopping by, Ladies and Gents! Have a great summer!

Preschool Story Hour

One final Story Hour for these three delightful children, and they're off to Kindergarten in the fall!
We had fun reading stories, building Cat-in-the-Hat towers, and creating our very own clothespin puppets!

This morning at Story Time, we read 999 Tadpoles and The Wide Mouthed Frog, sang a song about Five Little Speckled Frogs, and enjoyed The Frog Prince puppet show. And then we made funny frog faces! Many thanks to Jamie, Katie, Holly, and Seth for making our morning so much fun!
