Story time Continues to be Popular

DSCF1009 DSCF1010

STORYTIME for pre-schoolers and older children, age 6 and up, is a very popular event. Wednesday mornings at the library, from 10:30am – 11:15am, is a beehive of activity. Stop in and observe the excitement!

Dianne Lindal reads, sings  and does activities with the preschool aged children, while Ruby Powers does projects and reads with children age 6 and up in another part of the building.

After the reading and activities are over, children and parents are encouraged to choose books to take home.

We are looking forward to having your children participate in the ever popular STORYTIME.
