Wow! Can you believe the beautiful weather we are having this fall? Keep it coming is all I can say.
I promised to share more information from the ILA conference in this article, but I wanted to let everyone know what's happening at the library during the month of November so you can mark your calendars.
Every Tuesday at 10:30 ñ 11:00 a.m. the Cherokee Public Library has Story Time for preschoolers (3-5 year olds). Come join in the fun as your child will hear and help tell stories, sing songs, do action rhymes and finger plays, and make a craft.
Nov. 2 the After School Bunch met for some Thanksgiving fun from 3:45 ñ 4:45 p.m. Mr. Tap and Go came to dance for the students, I read a Thanksgiving story and after the story the students went on a scavenger hunt to find Thanksgiving items hidden in the library. Then they played pin the feather on the turkey and made a craft that they could use for their family's Thanksgiving dinner.
Do you have questions about the Internet? Monday, Nov. 8 Jeff Friedrichsen will present "Chatting With Kids About Being Online" from 6:30 ñ 7:30 p.m. in the Youth Department at the Cherokee Public Library. He will share some important safety information and answer any questions you might have. Each person will receive a booklet about Internet safety after the program. All ages are welcome.
Saturday, Nov. 13 the Terrific Toddlers program will meet from 10:30 ñ 11 a.m. Parents with 1-3 year old children will enjoy some one on one time, learn new rhymes, finger plays, and songs to do with their children and meet other parents who have children the same age.
Youth in Action, 5th and 6th grade students, will meet Tuesday, Nov. 16 from 3:45 ñ 4:45 p.m. Mr. Tap and Go will do a dance routine. Then he will challenge the students to help him solve a mixed up riddle. They will also be able to try their skills at a couple of Minute to Win It games. Snacks will be provided. Don't forget to ride Bus #3 to the library.
Homeschoolers will meet from 2 p.m. ñ 3 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 18. Come visit the library and share ideas with each other.
Be sure to stop by the library and pick up a November newsletter at the front desk or upstairs in the youth department. If you have any questions about the programs call 225-3498 and ask for Peg.
