Happy Holidays!!

The month of December has been a busy time for the children's department. Our pajama storytime on the 8th was a great success!! I do believe everyone had a good time with our Gingerbread Boy themed party. We plan to host another pajama storytime in the Spring. Be on the lookout for the time and date of this event.
The River City Clarinet Choir helped us get in the spirit of the season by playing Christmas music in the children's department on the 14th. There were around 15 clarinetists ranging in all ages and skill levels. They lined up along the Easy Reader section and played beautiful music for all to enjoy.

The rest of that week was spent partying with our Storytime children! What fun we had listening to stories like Santa's Stuck by Rhonda Gowler Greene and making our Santa faces and reindeer.
Also, this month Lindy Smith with PACT has come in during some of our storytimes to share ideas and strategies on parenting. She will be back again in January with more ideas for us. Mark your calendars for 10 am on January 12, 19, and 26 and again on February 2. She will conduct her seminar for the parents while I share stories with the children.

This week has been more relaxed and has given us a chance to catch up on ordering new material for the children's department. A couple of titles to look forward to in the future will be Not Last Night But the Night Before by Colin McNaughton and Day Is Done by Peter Yarrow.

So with all that said, now is the time for us to wish you all a Happy Holiday! Enjoy spending time with family and friends and maybe stop by to pick up a book or two....or three or four to read for the holidays!
