Our library ambassadors did a fabulous job at our most recent StorySmARTS program!  They read bear stories and then helped the kids to create their own multi-colored bears.  Here are just a few pictures from the beary fun story and craft time:  Storysmarts 3Storysmarts 2StorySmarts 1

octopusJoin us on Saturday, July 26 at 11 am and make a cool octopus!  If you’re old enough to use a glue stick, you’re old enough for Saturday Crafts!!

We had lots of laughs at yesterday’s Crafty Stories – with books and puns and riddles about the sea.  We read Down, Down Down: a Journey to the Bottom of the Sea and  Billy Twitters and His Blue Whale Problem.  After the stories and riddles, we all painted and decorated our own blue (or pink, or striped) whales!  Here are just a few of the many artists with their pet whales:  Whale 4 - Copy Nice!!!!!!!  The one on the right is a shark.Whale 2 - CopyCool!!!!!  Whale 1 - CopyAwesome!!!!  Whale 3 - CopyPinkalicious!!
