Craft Kits

Every week with Family Story Time I make craft kits to supplement the week's theme. You are always welcome to request a kit and try it out. Supplies maybe limited. This week we're making apple pockets & apple piggs. I make 50 craft kits every week!

Story Walk

Another month, another Story Walk. This time we are reading "Scaredy Squirrel" by Melanie Watt. If you have ever been afraid then you know how Scaredy Squirrel feels. He is afraid of everything! Will he ever be brave enough to leave his nest? Read and find out..

Please start in front of the Children's Room ( by the door to the Library)and follow the pages around the Library to the front of the building.
