Preschool Storytime

Mrs. Amera was re-telling an adaption of the story In a Dark, Dark Room by Alvin Schwartz.

 This week we went camping in the library! After listening to some spooky stories(in the dark), we went on a BEAR hunt! We sang  songs, learned some rhymes, then made something (no, not s'mores); we each built our own campfires :O)
If you missed this program, check out some of our camping stories and camp out in your living/family room. Some of my favorites are Tacky goes to camp by Lester, Camping Day by Laskin, Duck Tents by Berry, Froggy goes to camp by London, just naming a few...


 Children used fabric markers and chose from seven designs to create their unique summer shirts.

Look at more pics on Facebook!
(some children didn't even need a template, they drew their favorite series!)

Dream Big READ MORE!

 (So you think you can read?)

Don't forget you can earn book bucks by reading to your younger sibling!

Dream Big Perform!


Children had the chance to show off some of their skills on Saturday! Dancers, singers, instruments... PERFORMERS! After the performance, Mrs. Amera raffled off a Phineas and Ferb Guitar, congratulations to Kavya our winner! Kavya, don't forget the library can help you learn how to play your new instrument, just check out our new book Guitar (Master This) by Seb Wesson. Also, a great big thank you to all the children who participated and when you become famous remember the library will have books about you! :O)

Dream Big Build!



 Thanks to Lowe's of Woodbridge, children were provided with safety goggles & aprons (that they got to keep) & a Lowe's game that they built! Each child completed their project and left with a patch,certificate, the joy of making something at the library, AND of course a lot of  BOOKS!
