Tomorrow, February 8th at
10:30 a.m. is the Pre-school Story and Craft “Hour.” Those of
you who have attended know how special this activity is. But,
for those of you who have not, I’d like to share a personal
I am aware that the
facilitator for this activity, Barbara Pappas, puts in endless time,
energy, and resources to provide a wonderful environment for the
little ones to hear stories, learn about the world, have fun with
crafts, and even have a snack.
The day I attended, the
theme was “Tracks.” The young ones were greeted by a volunteer
and her standard poodle, who came to share part of the time.
They then heard a story from Librarian Jackie Heath on pre-historic
animals and the importance of sharing. The kids then went outside
and followed the poodle’s tracks in the snow, coming back in to
listen to a story about a poodle posse and, again, the importance of
sharing. All of this was followed by poodle cookies, a
wonderful craft with cutouts and track stamping, as well as a
general playtime. It’s an awesome time!
Every Wednesday at 3:30
p.m., a crafty group of people join forces at the library for the
Knitting Circle. Come for the camaraderie and bring your handiwork
