Preschool Storytime: Preparing For Winter

It’s starting to get (kind of) cold outside, which means that animals in the northern hemisphere are preparing for the winter ahead. Join us on Tuesday, November 17th at 10:30 AM for a Preschool Storytime all about how animals get ready for winter! We are back in the meeting room this week, so make sure you grab your free ticket from the information desk before the program starts. This storytime is geared towards children ages 3 years +.

Name Our New Storytime Mascot at Katherine Tyra @ Bear Creek Library

Bear Ballot BoxWe are bringing the bear back to Bear Creek with the addition of our new black bear storytime mascot.  Our little bear is counting on each of you to help him.   This bear cub doesn’t have a name yet, so he’s asking all of his new storytime and library friends to help choose his name. 

The ballots and ballot box are located in our children’s section.  The three names on the ballot are: Honey, Buddy or Cubby.  Voting will be held November 11 - November 30th.  Our bear cub’s new name will be announced at our weekly storytimes during the first week in December. 

Come cast your vote and welcome our new little bear to the Katherine Tyra @ Bear Creek family!
