Story Time With Celia

We will be winding down our April story time's with a special tribute to April Showers - - - Bring May Flowers! At least, today it sounds like a good idea!

Anyway, it will be the perfect day to do a planting activity and if it's not flowers it may be something else just as wonderful and grand to welcome in the merry, merry month of May. May Day. Mother's Day. May Pole. Mother May I.

The story time is geared toward ages 4-7, but all ages are welcome and a beverage and snack will be supplied.

Thanks for coming. Thanks for making our Sundays bright and filled with laughter (yeah, sometimes crying -- but mostly laughter). Your kids are great!

Story Time with Celia

I wish I had a picture of Celia to put here. If I did she would look like a cross between a loveable lab puppy, Mother Goose, and your favorite babysitter with a splash of sparkly glitter.

Anyway, she is all these things and more and she loves kids, telling stories and doing crafts. And she is here EVERY SUNDAY to share her loves with your kids.

This April we will be doing Poetry and Earth Day activities to celebrate National Poetry Month and Earth Day.

Story time and activity is geared toward ages 4-7, but all ages are welcome. A snack will be provided.

We will see you here!

Puppet Show with Mrs. Pages CANCELLED

Our apologies . . . Mrs. Pages will not be able to make the puppet show due to a serious neck/back/shoulder strain/pull needing bed rest and powerful pain medication.

We don't want Mrs. Pages the Library Witch to perform a puppet show under powerful pain medication. In fact, we really don't want to watch Mrs. Pages the Library Witch perform a puppet show under powerful pain medication . . . or do we? Maybe some of you do, but either way, our apologies because she won't be able to be there and let's all wish her the speediest of recoveries.

Puppet Show

 "Hey Kids! I'm Joe the Construction Worker and we're working real hard here to bring you the best in educational fun and entertainment ."

 

Join Joe and his friends as we welcome Mrs. Pages the Library Witch and her family back to Main Street Books for a wonderful Saturday morning of puppet antics. Joe has been with Main Street Books for over four years now as our number one maintenance man and wants to assure you that all his nails are pounded and screws are driven in all the right places . . . "Safety First!" is Joe's Motto.

Another thing that Joe likes more than safety (or at least as much) is cake. He likes chocolate, vanilla, ice cream, strawberry, neopolitan, angel food, donut . . . and he'll be hanging real close to the bookstore on Saturday because he knows there will be cake as we celebrate our 4th anniversary!

I hope you hang around real close, too! What's your favorite cake? I hope it's the same one Joe and Val at Main Street Book like (actually, Val only pretends to like Joe's cake because Joe can get kind of pouty if he doesn't get his way). He isn't as tough as he looks!
