Early Literacy Program

The month of September has flown by like a leaf in the wind, and here we are in October. We would love to see you at any and all of our story hour programs, where our color of the month is ORANGE! As you are out and about with your children, try going on an alphabet scavenger hunt, searching your neighborhood for things that begin with each letter of the alphabet:

A – ant, B – birdhouse, C – cloud, D – doorway, and so on. Don’t miss our super Halloween story hour on Tuesday, October 31st. Come in costume and enjoy some spooky stories! Of course, stop in the library anytime and rake in some good books. See you soon!
