I hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable Thanksgiving. Since this is the time to share what we are thankful for I'd like to take this opportunity to let our patrons know how much I appreciate all those who have volunteered their time and talents to help with programs and activities at the library. I am also thankful for book donations the children's department has received throughout the year. There are also organizations and businesses that support our library. Thank you all for your support and generosity.
This month the children's department had a special program for adults. Fran Briggs the Apron Lady was pleased with the group of ladies who came to her program. She had lots of aprons and stories she shared about her apron collection. The ladies had a good time reminiscing about the different types of aprons and how they were used. I will be having more programs for adults.
Thanksgiving has passed and now people are marking their calendars for the many events that will be going on in December.
Here are a few dates to mark on your calendar for programs at the library.
Terrific Toddlers will meet Saturday, December 8 from 10:30 to 11:00 a.m. This program is for children ages 1-3 and their parents. There'll be stories, singing, dancing, finger plays, and rhymes. It's also a great chance to spend time with your child/children and get acquainted with other parents and their children. Hope to see you then. This group meets one Saturday out of each month.
As usual, the Preschool Story Time for 3 ñ 5 year olds will meet every Tuesday from 10:30 ñ 11:00 a.m. We will listen to stories, sing songs, and do a craft.
Kindergarten ñ 6th grade students here's a special program you won't want to miss. Lisa Laird and her puppet friends are back. They will amaze you with stories, magic, and fascinating facts about St. Nicholas and other traditions of the season. Students need to ride the IC bus to the library. Lisa will present her program at the library in the story time room upstairs on Thursday, December 20 from 3:45 ñ 4:45 p.m. She will have prizes for all who can come. All ages are welcome. Hope to see you then.
There's only one more week to make bids on the baskets downstairs at the library. There are several baskets for children.
