Children’s Story Time

On Tuesday, June 7, at 2:30 p.m., we will welcome Susan Weitz as our guest reader when we will have “Adventures with Animals”!

We took advantage of great weather to utilize our porch for our May Story Times.  On May 10, we planted flower seeds for the children to take home to watch grow.  On May 24, we visited with live frogs.

Our last scheduled Children’s Story Time for the spring will take place on Tuesday, June 21, with the theme of butterflies.
