Story Time will continue with the theme-“What Can We Dewey In the Library”, during the winter/spring session, learning about the Dewey Decimal system and the different kinds of nonfiction children’s books at the Library.
In 2020 we will be doing things differently in winter/spring session. Story Time will go from January through the end of April and then we will take the month of May off to prepare for the Summer Reading Program.
We will also have one or more guest readers for three weeks at the end of January and first of February. Be sure to come and welcome our guest reader.
In the past we have discontinued Story Time in March but I find it’s too hard for kids to get in the habit of coming back when the weather warms up so we will see if we can have a more consistent attendance scheduling Story Time this way.
