Summer Reading 2020 - "Imagine Your Story"

Thank you to all who tried our Summer Reading program this year. What wonderful books you all read! Stay tuned for more reading challenges - we have some fun things planned!

Story Walk 

Time for another new story walk! Come and take a look at a classic fairy tale. It's got bragging and promises plus a special bet. But it's really about the importance of a name."Rumpelstiltskin" is always fun to read and you have illustrations by Paul Galdone. Remember if the wind is blowing too hard - I'll have to take the story walk down for a little while. Don't worry I'll put it up again.


Storytime and YouTube
Please join Miss Kate for a Zoom Story Time. You may sign up for Tuesdays starting September 29 at 10:00 AM continuing through December 15th. If that doesn't  works for you join Miss Kate on our YouTube channel. There you will find her reading books and doing silly crafts. Our Director Corinn Flaherty and her dog Roxie, Mrs. Niles, Mary, Parker, Nicholas and Charlie Evitts are also reading books (Charlie the dog is mostly listening)..
