Important things to notice: Viburnum has been changed to Tuesdays at 10 am and an additional Ironton story time will be on Thursday afternoons at 3:30 pm, but will cover the same material as Monday story time.

Closing Party!

The closing parties at each branch were bitter sweet as it meant a wrapping up of the Summer Reading program.  We read “Pete the Cat’s I Love My White Shoes,” and played with a variety of toys, blocks, and puzzles. We also had a craft—mandoharps!  You strum it similarly to a guitar but you can hold it with one hand.  It could be said that the biggest hits of this party were the bubble machine and the water beads because a majority of the kids could be found congregating in those areas.  See pics below!

Magnatiles are also a huge hit!




Abra-Kid-Abra!

We had a magician from Abra-Kid-Abra as our third performer this summer and he was a big hit!  We had record setting numbers at the Ironton performance!  During the Ironton performance, the magician had the help of local kid magician, Logan D., who performed a couple of tricks for the audience. At the end of each performance, kids got to take home a trick.  Check out some of the fun below!






Exploring South America!

Our book this week was “Waiting for the Biblioburro,” which is a beautifully illustrated book about a little girl waiting on the man that uses donkeys to carry a traveling library.  We made two crafts this week—maracas and carnival masks.  As you can see in the pictures below, the children looked adorable in their masks.  For a snack, we enjoyed plantain chips which many of us thought tasted just like potato chips (some of the kids disagreed though).
