Last week, children enjoyed our outdoor program. While children were decorating the sidewalk at the Iselin Branch Library, children and parents enjoyed getting a splash of water while watching as bubbles were swirling in the air. Thank you for all the wonderful artwork! Patrons loved seeing the colorful pictures as they entered the Iselin Branch.

This week, children had the opportunity to meet and learn from an experienced actor. Children participated in a fun warm-up exercise, where they learned each other's names, then they learned how to make pretend objects and faces; after these exciting exercises children listened to Yucky Worms by Vivian French. Children learned a lot about worms and had the opportunity to act-out parts of the story.
