Story Time With Celia

Do you like books? Do you like getting your hands full of glitter and glue? Do you like juice boxes and fruit snacks? Well, who doesn't?

If you said Yes, Yes, Yes, to all of the above you would love to come down to story time this Sunday for a wonderful story, a messy activity and a refreshing snack.

We might do something with a camping theme . . . s'mores maybe? Ghost stories, maybe? Who knows. We are so disorganized around here we never know what we're doing until the last minute (not really, we just change our minds once in a while -- like if we can't figure out how to do s'mores without burning down the building).

Anyway, be there, be here, and we'll have a great time planned.

Story Time With Celia

Hey kids, join us for story time with Celia.

We have plans to do some fingerpainting (Celia loves to fingerpaint, what can I say?) and if we don't fingerpaint we might just nosepaint or feetpaint or earpaint. Chances are, though, we will be using our fingers.

The event is free and we always have a snack and one or two or three great books to read.

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.

 

Story Time With Celia

Join us as we welcome the bubbly, the efervescant (did I spell that right -- and to think this is a bookstore!), the young lady whom all small children aspire to sit on her lap -- Celia!

We will explore Earth Day and National Poetry Month during April with an appropriate themed activity.

Story time is geared toward ages 4-7 but all ages are welcome.

The entire afternoon is free and a beverage and snack will be served.
