New Baby and Spring Story Time!

Spring Story Time may look a little different this year because Mrs. Kelsey is out on maternity leave.  She welcomed her first child, Ezra, into the world on January 20 at 1:13 a.m.  Kelsey and Ezra are doing well and enjoying their time at home.  Mrs. Kelsey will be back to work in mid-March. 

We are just one week away from the start of spring story time!  Shannon Blount will be kicking things off while Mrs. Kelsey is gone.  She is an avid reader, mom of two awesome boys, and passionate about reading and education.  She is a great addition to the ORL staff!  Please welcome Shannon and we hope you will all join us next week!

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.
