Paws 4 Reading, Email Addresses, Story Times

This week is quite slow: One program! I am slow in posting it as well since it's this afternoon: Monday at 3:30 is Paws 4 Reading (Aspen). Two times are left--4:30 and 4:45, so call or email me if you'd like to sign up.

I send out email notices when a program is coming up or story times are starting or any other information needs to get out. Lately, I've been getting a lot returned with "User does not have a ____ account" or "Address has been disabled". If you used to receive notices and now you do not, or if you want to receive notices and never have, please email me at and update your email address!

Story Times are starting Jan. 19th and will run through Feb. 26th.

Tuesday, 10:30am. 1-2 year olds, Toddlers Story Time.

Wednesday, 3:00pm. 4-6 year olds, Runners Story Time.

Thursday, 11:00am. 2-3 year olds, Walkers with Parents Story Time.

Friday, 11:00am. 3-4 year olds, Independent Walkers Story Time.

Each Story Time is different:

The Toddlers group will have mostly songs and fingerplays or rhymes, with a very simple book, maybe two. Then the little ones will play while the grown-ups have coffee and tea and a little time to socialize.

The Walkers with Parents Story Time is slightly more advanced, with songs and fingerplays, but we’ll also introduce picture books and ask a few simple questions. Instead of play time, this group will make a small craft at the end.

Independent Walkers will follow the same format as Walkers with Parents, but they will come in on their own while their parents have a chance to select their own library materials.

The Runners group will have a couple songs or fingerplays, but most of the time will be spent reading and talking about the stories while their parents have a chance to select their own materials. They will also have a craft at the end.

There will be a different theme each week, from favorites to apples to school, etc. Our space is limited, so please call to sign up—these limits exist not only because of space but also so that each child will have the best Story Time experience possible. We will find a way to accommodate every interested child, adding a Story Time if necessary.

Call 474-2044 to sign up. You can also e-mail
