Katherine Tyra Bear is Ready for Thanksgiving, Football and a Name

Bear with Football

The votes have been pouring in these last few weeks from all of our storytime friends.   What will our little bear's name be?  Will it be Honey, Cubby or Buddy?  You still have time to help choose his name.   Voting will end on November 30th. 

Join us next week at one of our storytimes for stories, songs, rhymes, crafts and to learn about the results of the election.

 Our little bear wishes everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving!  He's thankful for all of his new storytime friends, for football and especially for turkey!  

Clean Out the Craft Closet Nov. 25th @ 2 PM

     Not all of the craft projects that we prepared for storytime or Community Craft programs at the Parker Williams Branch get used.

     Much like turkey, mashed potatoes, and that little bit of stuffing at the end of a Thanksgiving meal, they are leftovers. They get stored away in our craft closet waiting for an opportunity to get used.
