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 restrictions can swap for non-candy eggs.

Please bring your own basket!

PLEASE NOTE: THIS PROGRAM HAS MOVED TO IT'S RAIN DATE, 4/27, BECAUSE OF THE RAINY FORECAST!
