St. Patrick's Day!

Next week at Toddler Story Time, we will be celebrating St. Patrick's Day. Feel free to wear green, and we will make some "shamrock shakes." We'll play St. Patrick's Day hot potato and Lucky Leprechaun says.  See you there!


One of my favorite pasttimes is putting puzzles together. I have discovered many of our customers who also like doing puzzles and often have made arrangements to meet someone at the library to exchange an armload of their puzzles with each other. There have also been a lot of sllightly used puzzles to purchase from the Friends of the Library. Are you a puzzle person? Help us put together a puzzle while you visit with a friend and meet some new friends any time we are open. There will be a puzzle board with an ongoing puzzle on it. A specific puzzle day that is set aside is each Wednesday - ALL DAY! Come in as early as 10:00 a.m. and stay as long as you want until 6:00 p.m. Or come and go when it fits your schedule.

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss~!

This upcoming Wednesday, March 2nd is Dr. Seuss's birthday. All across the country, it is celebrated also as "Read Across America" day. To celebrate, on Thursday, during storytime at 10:40, we will be having a very special Dr. Seuss themed morning. To learn more about Dr. Seuss, the author, go here. For fun games for your children to play on the internet, and more, go here. (The matching game is particularly addictive). For great quotes, go here.


Don't forget this Monday - February 21 at 6:30 p.m. adults will be able to handle, try out and learn more about a Kindle, Nook, Sony Reader, ipad, ipod and an e-notebook at Stratford Library. If you own any of these items you may bring it. If you haven't bought any, come and explore your possibilities. Bring your questions. Come and have fun! Light refreshments will be served. (see previous week's blog for more detailed announcement)


Next week we will celebrate Black History Month at storytime and, among other activities, will be making peanut butter in honor of George Washington Carver.
