Children's Library Corner
Here's something to smile about. There's only 37 days until the first day of Spring. "And now for the rest of the story" as Paul Harvey would say.
The Cherokee Public Library continues to offer programs for different aged children. Every Tuesday at 10:30 a.m. children ages three to five years old can come and listen to stories, do finger plays, action rhymes, sing songs and do a simple craft during Preschool Story Time.
The Youth in Action group will meet on Thursday, Feb. 18 from 3:45 p.m. to 4:45 p.m. The focus will be on the Winter Olympics and what kind of an art detective you are. This program is geared more for 5th and 6th grade youth but anyone is welcome. Don't forget to ride bus #3 to the library.
Tuesday, Feb. 23 the After School Bunch will meet at the Cherokee Public Library from 3:45 p.m. to 4:45 p.m. This program is prepared for children in grades K-4th grade but anyone is welcome. Come and join in the Olympic Games at the library.
Ride bus #3 to the library.
Don't forget that the Cherokee Public Library with be closed Monday, Feb. 15 in honor of President's Day.
I hear there is going to be a movie made that is based on a series by Rick Riordan. "Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief" will start playing in theatres on Presidents Day. It is rated PG.
There have been about twenty-two youth books that have been made into a movie. How many titles could you name? If you would like to know the titles just come upstairs to the youth department and check your list with the library's list.
The library has received some new books that are just waiting to be checked out. "Little Quack Counts" and "Little Quack Likes Colors" are board books and would be great for toddlers. "Amelia Bedelia's First Valentine" and "A Small Brown Dog with a Wet Pink Nose" would be good read aloud books for pre-school to six year olds. Our nine to twelve year old readers can check out the newest "The Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Last Straw" or the complete series of "The Warriors: A New Prophecy." Young adult readers can check out James Paterson's, "Witch & Wizard" or "Front and Center" by Catherine Gilbert Murdock.
So bop on over to the Cherokee Public Library and check out a book, a magazine, or some DVDs. While you're at it pick up our February newsletter.
Don't forget that Sunday is Valentine's Day.
