 We have some exciting news about Story Hour!  We are moving back inside the library!  To ensure social distancing, we are allowing three families to attend at a time. We are asking that the adults please wear a mask, but we understand that little ones might not be able to (and that is ok).  We are offering three dates to sign up and get on the schedule:

 

Tuesday, November 10

 

Thursday, November 12

 

*New date* Friday, November 13

 

All starting at 10:00 AM.  Since we have 3 tables I am thinking we can do our craft here at the library, but feel free to take them home if you cannot stay longer. 
**Please let me know which date you prefer, and a second date that would work for you to help with scheduling.  It is first come, first serve for securing your preferred date.  It helps us out if you could let us know as soon as possible.
 
If you cannot make any of these dates, or would rather not attend indoors, we can have the same craft and a couple of books ready for you to pick up.  KInd of like a "Story Hour Kit".

 

We have a fun morning planned with a Thanksgiving theme.  Looking forward to being back in the library for Story Hour!

This is a great program to introduce your child to reading and interacting with other children.  In addition to reading stories, we also incorporate movement, singing, and small motor skills through arts and crafts.  This program is open to young children ages 2 to 5.
