Special Storytime Party

We are having a storytime party, but for whom? 

Everyone is sure to have Seussational time as we celebrate the life and work of a man with many names. Of whom am I speaking? The beloved children's author Theodor Seuss Geisel, of course. You've never heard of him? Well, that is because he went by several nom de plumes. He wrote one book, Because a Little Bug Went Ka-choo!, as Rosetta Stone. He also wrote several early readers as Theo LeSieg, but you probably know him as the one and only Dr. Seuss!

 

Ducks and Chickens in the Library?!

January 13th is National Rubber Ducky Day! However, you don't have to wait until then to come  see the 259 unique duckies in the display case. Children can then play the  I Spy Ducks game! Readers and non-reader alike are encouraged to participate in this fun early literacy activity. Children will search the library for clues. When they find the item they are looking for they will circle or color-in the appropriate answer on a game board.

1. Come to the Information Desk at the library and request for a game board.  This game can be completed individually, as a family, or as a group activity.

Cool Sites for Kids and Parents too

 Navigating through the World Wide Web can be difficult; you can't always trust that the information provided is true or correct.  When working with children, you also want to ensure their safety.  I would like to encourage you to take a look Great Websites for Kids. [It provides] a compilation of exemplary websites geared to children from birth to age 14. Suggested sites are evaluated by the Great Websites for Kids Committee using established selection criteria. The committee is made up of members of the Association for Library Service to Children, a division of the American Library Association.
