Spooky Storytime

There's a chill in the air...All Hallow's Eve is near! Come to our Spooky Preschool Storytime Tuesday, October 25  at 1:30pm and celebrate the Fall festive fun! Nothing will be too scary of course...mostly we'll talk of pumpkins and a few friendly ghosties too. The fun will include feltboard stories, books, songs, action rhymes and activities to encourage pre-literacy for ages 3-6 years. Voting will be held through Nov. 8 in the Meeting Room, so Toddler Time, Preschool Storytime and Babytime will meet in the Children's Area through that time.  ©Vital Imagery Ltd. 2016
