Mark Your Calendars!!

Mark your calendars! Children’s programming at the library begins Sept. 11th and we have planned something for everyone.
On Friday September 13th, Robert and Lynn Halbrook will present their magic show for preschoolers, “Once Upon a Time.”  We have had Robert visit the library as Professor Marvel, and have always been delighted with his performance.  “Once Upon a Time” is their newest show, and I’m so excited to see what they have planned for a young audience.  Older siblings are welcome.

Our regular schedule will start on Wednesday September 11th, with Toddler Time at 10:15.  Toddler Time is a great introduction for young children to being in a group.  Babies are welcome as we sing songs, dance, and read one short book.  Children must attend Toddler Time with a caregiver.
Thursday nights at 7 we will offer Bedtime Story Time.   Children often attend in their pajamas, and the plan is that they can go home and go to bed. 

On Friday mornings at 10 Preschool Story Hour will include one or two books, singing, fun activities and a craft.  This story time is planned for children ages 3-6.

We’re offering something new on the second Saturday of each month at 10:00.  I’m going to follow Robert Halbrook’s inspiration and plan a Saturday story hour on the theme, “Once Upon a Time.”  We’ll have a circle time, explore well known fairy tales, and make a craft.  This story hour is planned for children who are at least three years old.   

Fun with 4-H is moving to the second Tuesdays of each month, beginning September 10th at 3:00.  Darcy Cole will offer all the fun of 4-H for children in grades K-5. 

Beginner Book Club, for ages 6-8, will meet on the 2nd Thursdays at 3:00 p.m., beginning September 12th

Get Caught Reading Book Club, for ages 9-12, will move to the 3rd Thursdays at 3:00 p.m. 

Tiana Schweim has wonderful things planned for teens 13 and older, including a book club that will meet at the high school, teen gaming night, teen events, and a teen advisory group.  I’m excited to see what will happen next.

All of the library programs in the chldren’s department are free, and   registration is not required.  It’s time to get back into a routine and I’m looking forward to a very busy fall. See you at the library!
