Toddler Storytime

 

Introducing Toddler Storytime!

You know our preschool storytime every Friday morning.  But lately we’ve been seeing more toddlers, so we wanted to create something new just for you!

Designed for ages 18 months-3 years, Toddler Storytime will feature more interactive music and movement to keep young participants engaged.

We will start with one a month and consider expanding if there is interest.  So, mark your calendars for our premiere…

FAQ:

Q: So, what age is your Friday storytime designed for?
A: Friday storytimes are designed for preschoolers aged 3-5.  (That said, we understand that caregivers often bring the whole family and do our best to accomodate everyone.)

Q: Do we need to pre-register?
A: No, just come on Wednesday, March 30th with your toddler in tow.

Q: What is the value of storytimes?
A: Long before they begin to read, young children can learn how sounds make words and how stories work.  Building these early literacy skills will help them grow and learn.  Also, it’s both fun and good for your toddlers to explore and play with you and their peers.

Book Group

Our public book meets the first Thursday of every month at 6:00 pm.  Everyone is welcome!

The next book we are reading is Daisy Jones and the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid.  It chronicles the rise and fall of a fictional 1970s rock group, and particularly the volatile relationship between leaders Daisy and Billy.  It’s a wild, thrilling, and surprisingly moving story.

If you have any questions about book group or would like to check out a copy of the book, give us a call.

Book sale results!

Our book sale was a big hit!  We attracted lots of customers and raised over $800!  Keep your eye on this space for improvements to our small family fun room as we spend those dollars.

Big thanks to our volunteers who helped make this possible!  It was a great event and we couldn’t have done it without you.

Book Sale

Our big book sale is getting closer!  We will have kids’ books, thriller, romances, cookbooks and lots more!  The prices will be reasonable and all proceeds will go to enhancing our fun room for kids.

Oh no, Mr. Boddy has been murdered!  You just came for a party, but now YOU are the main suspect.  The police will be here in 45 minutes.  If you can’t prove who the real killer is, then it’s off to prison with you.

The popular event for teens and adults returns!  Unlike other escape rooms, ours is completely free!  Use your wits to solve a series of puzzles as a team.  We will register up to 5 people per session.  Please call the library at 507-744-3977 to pre-register.  Suggested for ages 12 and up.
