Story Time Stuff

Well, after the Halloween Party mob, the library is still standing--but I apparently misplaced my brain. Story times start up again next week! Eeek! But before I get into that, there's a special program for little kids.

Friday, Oct. 28 at 11am--No Nightmares Story Time for Little Monsters. Halloween-themed, but not even a little bit scary. And of course, a craft afterwards. Costumes are encouraged, but not required.

Ok, now into the big long drone about regular Story Times. First off: PLEASE SIGN UP. If anyone asks you about story times, tell them to SIGN UP. Just call 474-2044 or email I need to know how many crafts to prepare and it's important that each child has a seat at the table.

Story Times will run Nov. 1-25 but NO STORY TIMES ON NOV. 11 or 24--If your group is either of those days, please feel free to join the next closest age group's storytime instead for that week.

Tuesday, 10:30am. Toddlers: 1-2 year olds.
Wednesday, 3:30pm. 4-6s On Their Own: 4-6 year olds.
Thursday, 11:00am. 2s and 3s With Parents: 2-3 year olds.
Friday, 11:00am. 3s and 4s On Their Own: 3-4 year olds.

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 2s and 3s With Parents Story Time is slightly more advanced, with some songs and fingerplays, but we’ll also read picture books and ask a few simple questions. Instead of play time, this group will make a small craft at the end. 3s and 4s On Their Own will follow the same format, but while they’re in story time, their parents will have a chance to find their own library books or just relax. The 4-6s On Their Own 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 find their own things or relax. They will also have a craft at the end.

There. I think that about covers it. See our Facebook page or click on the little pictures beside the blog for Halloween party pictures!
