We had a great time at yesterday's BOOK BINGO Party! I'm so impressed with the BOOK BINGO games my friends completed and returned. Way to go!

I can't wait to play BOOK BINGO again with you!

Happy 154th Birthday to the Pencil Eraser!

Hello Friends,

Did you know the pencil eraser was patented 154 years ago today? We read imaginative stories about pencils and erasers, and crayons too. Then we rolled up our sleeves and created colorful scenes using only pencil erasers and stamp pads. This was our inspiration:

And these are scenes from our creative art process:

My guy is smiling because he just pulled the special pencil eraser from the jar, and he won four free tickets to see Stuart Little at the Scranton Cultural Center tomorrow! Congratulations!
Thanks for a fun storytime today!

A reminder - there is NO STORYTIME next Monday or Friday. Our annual Easter Egg Hunt is next Friday, April 6th. Times vary and registration is required. Please call the library at 207-0764 for more information. We'll see you for our next Morning Storytime on Monday, April 9th - it's a very special Storytime, as we will celebrate the public library's 179th Birthday! Stories, birthday cake and more! Hope to see you here!

xoxo, Miss Katie

BandAid Butterflies at Pajama Storytime

Hello, Friends!

At Thursday's Pajama Storytime, we read stories about boo-boo's, BandAids, germs, and tissues, so we used BandAids and tissues to create these beautiful butterflies:

Maybe you can do this at home!

Our next Pajama Storytime is Thursday, April 5th, 5:30-6:30pm. Registration is required; please call the library at 207-0764.

It's Roy G. Biv at Storytime!

Hello, Friends!

Friday's Storytime featured many books about COLORS! My super-smart friends recalled every color in the rainbow using the acronym ROY G. BIV, so we made pictures of good ol' Mr. BIV to take home! Check out these cute kids and their colorful ROY G. BIVs:

Thanks for the fun! See you next time! xoxo, Miss Katie

Cats and Shoes (and Lots of Paint!) Storytime

Hello, Friends!

This morning's storytime featured one of my favorite new books - Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes, and two other favorites - Whose Shoes and Nobody's Nosier Than a Cat. We played "Pin-the-Shoe on Pete the Cat", and we painted our white shoes various colors, just like we saw in our story. Only a few photos of today's fun:

Our next Storytime is this Friday, March 30th at 11:30am. Stop in to hear stories and create a craft using a very special writing tool - the pencil! No registration necessary. See you soon!

xoxo, Miss Katie
