Ready-To-Read Storytime for 5 - 8 year olds

4:00pm

Children who have entered grade school journey towards being readers, but they still love listening to stories, and doing so aids in literacy skills! This program is designed to support your emergent reader by sharing a sample of stories & series that are geared toward various levels of early readers, & get them excited to use their new reading skills on the sequels later. Stories are followed by a craft, and we finish up the 60 minute session with a snack.

20th Annual EGG HUNT!

11:00am

Kids of all ages are invited to the Library’s egg hunt, sponsored by the Friends of the Library. Children will search the grounds for colorful eggs, and a chance to win prizes!

We do a nice, friendly hunt with big kids on one lawn and littles on another, and all participants collect the same number of eggs, so no one misses out. Kids who have food allergies can swap for non-candy eggs.

Please bring your own basket!

In case of rain, this program will take place the following Saturday, April 27th. Please call the library at 583-3408 x3 for questions about weather.

Storytime for 3 - 5 year olds

Children will enjoy stories, games, songs, and crafts about the things we see and do in springtime. The session runs 6 weeks.

This program is crafted specifically for the attention span and interest level of 3-5 year olds. If your child is younger than 3 or may not be up for sitting and listening to 4-5 stories with 1-2 song or game breaks in between you may want to consider our storytime for 2-3 year olds, which runs on Wednedays at 10am, or our Kangaroo Time program, which runs on Thursdays at 10am.
