2018 Lip Sync Battle

Ozark Regional Library hit the stage earlier this month for a Lip Sync Battle at The Woods in Ironton.  The event kicked off with staff members John and Michelle performing a song called "Sukiyaki" by 4 P.M. 

We had two teams competing in the battle with Team One performing "Watch Me" by Silento and "Shake it Off" by Taylor Swift.  

Team Two performed "Hold the Drama" and "Boomerang" by JoJo Siwa.

Both teams performed extremely well and were scored on choreography, synchronicity, creativity, and presentation.  The panel of judges consisted of Shelby Chan (City of Pilot Knob), Tiffany Hickman (First State Community Bank), and Erna Barker (Great Southern Bank).

Team Two ended up taking home the title of Lip Sync Battle Champion but both teams received trophies for their amazing efforts!

U-Z Story Time

Unfortunately, due to holiday and snow, the last story time of the fall was only able to be held at Viburnum, but we still had fun finishing up the alphabet.  We played with a xylophone, read "The Watermelon Seed" and did a watermelon counting activity.  Our second book was "Animal Strike at the Zoo" and we had fun making zoo animal picture frames.

S is for School and Sharks and T is for Turtles!

On our activity table, we had some turtles hiding in sand that the kids had to try to find.  Our flannel story was called "Turtles Having Fun."  Our two books were "Flight School" and "Nugget and Fang."  School and sharks are two of the favorite subjects of the storytime kiddos.  For our craft, we made shark hats and wore them while we sang "Baby Shark."
