Shoot For the Moon

Last week we took a thrilling ride to the moon.   Teams raced each other to see who could reach the moon, grab a moon rock, and safely return before time ran out!  Next, everyone made their own moon rovers, using nothing but everyday supplies and their own Creativity!
Creating unique moon rovers

Finished Rover.  Let's test it out!

SPACE RACE and Amazing Mural, come to Ironton and add more color to the mural.

No two designs were the same.
Collaboration is key.

NEXT WEEK be sure to stop by story-time for the little ones where we will Trek across our Universe.  For those a little older they will design a carrier to protect an egg from a big fall.  Don't let your egg down!

Creativity at work!

We had a great program for our preschoolers last week.  The kids made their own sun-catcher stars to hang in their windows and shine all summer!   Our older kids took home their own galaxies in a jar and tried to help Marvin and Marsha Martian escape.  Remember:  The ages on our schedule are guidelines, although we gear our lessons toward certain ages, children of all ages are welcome!

Farewell from Mrs. Kelsey

Hi Everyone!

I have a bittersweet announcement.  I am leaving my position as Youth Librarian. Friday, May 17, will be my last day.  Though I have cherished my time with Ozark Regional Library, I am greatly looking forward to being a stay-at-home mom.  I will miss the library and the many wonderful families and children that I have had the pleasure to serve during my time here.  Thank you for all of the wonderful memories!

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!
