The library is hosting a swap meet out in the parking lot next to the library. Anyone is welcome to come join us from 8am-12pm on September 19th. People wanting to set up a booth need to come into the library and fill out a form. The cost to set up a booth is $5 for a 18x12 spot. There will be no electricity to these places and we will not be allowing guns, ammunition, or onsite cooking of food.
Preschool storytimes will begin again on September 14th at 9am. Preschool storytimes are for children up to preschool level. Each storytime will have a reader reading stories to the children and some kind of activity whether it be a simple craft, a game, musical dance, or just some coloring sheets it’s sure to be a lot of fun for the little ones. They will take place every Monday morning except when the weather is bad or the older children are out of school.
For a little extra incentive to read to your little ones we have two suggestions to try. There is a program called 1,000 books before kindergarten. The goal is to read 1,000 books to your child before they reach their school age milestone. There is an app you can download onto your smart phone or tablet to help you keep track of your reading progress. The app is simply called 1,000 books before kindergarten. Just download it, make an account, add your children and away you go. Another program we have found to encourage reading and give your little one some mail of their very own in the mailbox is the Dolly Parton Imagination Library. You sign up absolutely free and they will send books to your child under the age of 5 and under. All you have to do is go to www. Imaginationlibrary.com and sign up. Once approved your child should start getting a book a month for you and them to enjoy.
