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 an alien and his spaceship. I make 40 craft kits every week!

Family Story Time Tuesdays or Wednesdays

Family Story Times continue for the winter session.  You may choose either Tuesdays or Wednesdays at  10:00 AM. We will start the last week of January and continue through March 15 & 16. Join Miss Kate for stories, fingerplays, songs and games. Receive a craft kit to take home. This session is a hybrid. You may choose to come in person or sign up to get a Zoom link. Masks  are required in the library.

Story Walk

Another month, another Story Walk. Literally! The Friends of the West Newbury Library have purchased a permanent Story Walk for the Library. This means unless there is a total catastrophe the Story Walk can be left up. Now we are waiting for one more part! Story Walk coming soon.

Storytime and YouTube
Family storytimes continue on Tuesday or Wednesday but 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).
