The week of November 30 is National Cookie Week! Come listen to Kayla Morin read Mmm...Cookies, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, and then le'ts make a cookie craft. On December 7 & 10, the morning crew will read all about mittens and, on December 9, the after-school group will make a very special card. Snow is in the air the week of December 14, and we'll be reading snowy stories and making a very unique snowflake. And please join us on Wednesday, December 23, 5:30 pm, for a reading of How the Grinch Stole Christmas. There will also be cookies, cocoa, and a Christmas ornament craft: It's a party! And, if you're looking for cozy vacation week fun, join us December 28, 30, and 31 for more stories and crafts.
Story Time Changes for December
Lapsit, Preschool, and Afterschool, too!
Starting November 30, we’ll be making a few adjustments and additions to our schedule. Our Monday and Thursday 10:30 story times will no longer be identical. Mondays will be intended for toddlers and preschoolers, while Thursdays will be geared to younger children, lapsit through two. And then Wednesdays at 4:00, we’ll have an after-school story hour.

Read to Rosa Will Be Back Monday, December 7
Perfect for kids who love both dogs and reading
Sign up today for this popular program for new and emerging readers, which takes place the first Monday of each month during the school year. Rosa is a gentle English Setter who, accompanied by her owner Marsha Barden, loves to sit on the floor and listen to stories. (Sometimes Rosa's sons, either Grover or Louie, come to the library instead.) Each child may sign up for a 20-minute time slot between 3:00 and 5:00. Give us a call, send an e-mail, or stop in to register.
Our next meeting will be Monday, December 14, 5:15
