Owls, Pies, and Turkeys: We Love November Story Times!
Join us Monday and Thursday mornings at 10:30
On November 9 and 12, Kayla Morin will read Owl Moon and Little Owl's Night and we'll make an owl craft. On November 16 and 19, we're reading Ugly Pie and All for Pie, Pie for All! to whet our appetites for Thanksgiving treats. During Thanksgiving week, we will just have story hour on Monday, November 23, when we'll read Turkey Trouble and 'Twas the Night Before Thanksgiving and make our own turkey.
Story Time Changes for December
Lapsit, Preschool, and Afterschool, too!
Starting November 30, we’ll be making a few adjustments and additions to our schedule. Our Monday and Thursday 10:30 story times will no longer be identical. Mondays will be geared to younger children, lapsit through two, while Thursdays will be intended for toddlers and preschoolers. And then Wednesdays at 4:00, we’ll have an after-school story hour. Look for more information about these changes soon.

Read to Rosa Will Be Back Monday, December 7
Perfect for kids who love both dogs and reading
Sign up today for this popular program for new and emerging readers, which takes place the first Monday of each month during the school year. Rosa is a gentle English Setter who, accompanied by her owner Marsha Barden, loves to sit on the floor and listen to stories. (Sometimes Rosa's sons, either Grover or Louie, come to the library instead.) Each child may sign up for a 20-minute time slot between 3:00 and 5:00. Give us a call, send an e-mail, or stop in to register.
Our next meeting will be Monday, December 14, 5:15
