Storytime Registration

We will have registration for our next session of Preschool Story Time and Toddler Story Time on January 10th at 10:30 a.m.

For those who have registered before you may notice that this is 30 minutes later than our usual time. On registration day last time Mayor Fife happened to drive by the library while all the mothers and their children were standing in line waiting for us to open. Concerned he called the library to find out why women and small children were standing out in the cold weather.

This has been a concern of mine for many years and I had tried to think of a way to fix the problem without coming up with a solution. The clerk working that morning said to me, "Why don't you just start later, that way they can line up inside to wait." I say that she is a genius and I owe her many thanks for thinking outside the box. Sometimes you can't see the forest for the trees when you have thought about a problem for so long, it takes someone with a new perspective to get the solution that has been staring you in the face. I do hope that this works and the line won't form so early before we open.

Free Reading Time session

Remember that classes fill up quickly so make sure you are here to get in line before 10:30! Classes available are Tuesdays or Wednesdays at 10:00 a.m. for 2-3 year olds and Tuesdays or Wednesdays at 11:30 a.m. for 3-5 year olds. Classes will begin on January 17th and run for 6 weeks. Cost of registration is a $1.00 donation. If you don't get in we have drop in classes on Wednesdays at 3:30 p.m., Thursdays at 10:00 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. No need to register for the free drop in classes.

We will see you all on Tuesday at 10:30 a.m.! Don't be late!
Michele, Children's Librarian
