Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow last Thursday, prompting a declaration of six more weeks of winter. We know winter weather will probably around longer than that, but we celebrated Phil's meteorological talents anyway at Preschool Story Time.

Bilingual Story Time
Once a month we gather for bilingual story time at the Pinedale
Library. Spanish speaking folks around the community read to the
children in Spanish as well as English. In November, Pilar Bandin
(a Peruvian schoolteacher) read to children and in December, Cleat
Zeiler (who did a religious mission in Chile) read. If you are bilingual,
we'd love to have you read a story, contact
us. Spanish speaking children as well as English speakers are
encouraged to attend—Bilingual Story Time is open to all.
Stay tuned for our January date.

Summer Reading 2016
We had a blast reading, earning prizes and being active as part
of our fitness-based "On Your Mark, Get Set, Read" reading program!
Our annual meetup at Sandy Beach was a highlight, with kids and
parents enjoying a beautiful day on the beach. Kids also enjoyed
turle rock painting in the Story Time room, as well as many other
activites and events throughout the summer.
