Puppet Bag Kits Give Kids Another Way to Read and Learn!


We are adding a number of puppet bags that can be checked out.  Included in the bag are a puppet, 4 or 5 books relating to the puppet, a reading/learning activity, and a coloring page.  Checking out one of the puppet kits qualifies our younger readers to cross off one of the X's on their BINGO sheet for 2-7 year-olds.

Reading with puppets creates new and different ways for children to respond to literature.  Have some fun with our puppet bags. You can make different voices, get into the spirit of the story by acting as different characters. Coming soon to join our Monkey friend are creatures like a dinosaur, a caterpillar, a fox, a cat, and LOTS more!

Great Summer Activities for our Littlest Library Patrons!


2-5 Year-Old Kiddie Fun

Although they are too young for some of the activities we have going on for the older kids, we have some great ways planned for  our youngest learners to keep involved in reading and learning during the summer!  Here's a fun way to keep track of some reading activities you can do, and they can put their scoresheets in our drawings this summer to win some BIG prizes.



Summer Sneak Peek--Nature Prints




Keep watching this blog for all the great things we will be doing this summer.  

Here's Sneak Peek #1:
On June 21 at our "Over in the Meadow" event at Lone Tree Park, you will have an opportunity to make a sun print, using some special print paper.  You  can find all kinds of fun things in the park that will make fantastic shadow prints.  It only takes a couple of minutes, a little sunshine, a little water, and PRESTO!  You have a unique nature print.
