Hasn't the fall weather been amazing. A lot of sunshine and just a little bit of snow has graced our area. I've heard people say this winter is going to be as harsh as last year and others say it is going to be mild. I'm hoping for the milder version.
Just a quick reminder of the November youth programs at the Cherokee Library.
Every Tuesday at 10:30 -- 11 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.
Youth in Action, 5th & 6th grade students, met Tuesday, Nov. 16 from 3:45 -- 4:45 p.m. Mr. Tap and Go did a dance routine for the students. Then he challenged the students to help him solve a mixed up riddle. They were able to try their skills at a couple of Minute to Win It games. Snacks were provided.
Homeschoolers will meet from 2-- 3 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 18. Come visit the library and share ideas with each other.
I'm looking forward to giving eighty-two Roosevelt kindergarten students a tour of the library. I will read a couple of stories, show them where they can find books to check out, and answer any of their questions. They will receive a bookmark, an activity booklet, and a newsletter to take home. If anyone else would like to bring a group to the library for a tour you can call 225-3498 and ask for Peg.
I also go out to Daycare Centers, Pre-Schools, and Headstart to read during the month. If you have ten or more children and would like me to come and read to them please call 225-3498 and we can set up a time.
"One World, Many Stories" is the theme for our 2011 Summer Reading Program. I attended a workshop on ideas one could use for their programs. It was quite informative and I am looking forward to using the projects and programs with our youth this summer.
Be prepared to travel all over the world.
If you are traveling this Thanksgiving have a safe and happy holiday.
