Story Times and Other Kids' Programs

Random announcement: Our Flickr account has been updated! Not only is everything current, but now you can also look all the back to 2007!

Friday, September 3 at 4pm: Diary of a Wimpy Kid movie! You've probably read at least the first book, if not all four. Come see the movie with friends and free popcorn! Not only that, but the publishers/publicity people have sent me Wimpy Kid 5 bookmarks and buttons that I will be giving out as well. (It comes out in November and yes, I will order it!).

Monday, September 20th at 11:ooam--"Getting Ready for Kindergarten" Workshop for Parents. If your child is going to kindergarten in the spring (or next fall and you really want to get a jump on it!), this program is for you. The Parent Information Resource Center provides this workshop to show you simple, fun and cheap ways to help your child prepare. You will receive free materials you can use and refreshments will be provided. Childcare will also be provided but you MUST sign up so that I can plan appropriately. Call 474-2044 or email
Story Times start September 7 and run through Oct. 15!
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 or 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 some 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, 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 fall, 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.
Call 474-2044 and ask for Lisa to sign up.
