Bilingual Storytime & Fire Safety Day

In October we enjoyed learning about firetrucks in both English and Spanish, and then strolled over to the firehouse to hear all about fire safety! Thanks so much to the firefighters for their service to our community and for devoting their time to talk to the kids about what to do in the event of a fire, showing the kids the fire trucks and protective gear, and teaching them that firefighters are here to help!

Recent Storytime pictures

We've had a great time celebrating books and learning at our January Storytimes. We learned that just about every body loves dragons and we had a wonderful time at our Stone Soup Storytime — everyone brought a vegetable for the pot and library staff member (resident foodie) Mary Thompson cooked us up a delicious soup enjoyed by all on cold winter's day. Dont miss our Baby and Me on Wednesdays at 10:30 am and our Preschool Storytime on Wednesday at 11 am.

Harry Potter Sorting Ceremony

Readers of all ages were able to get a taste of some great books at our September 2017 Harry Potter Book Tasting and Sorting Ceremony. They looked at the book cover, read the description, and read the first page to decide if they wanted to "taste" a book. Magical fun was had by all!

They made it through the night! After reading to their heart's content, starting a rock band and playing Legos and trains, they got into the cupcakes. But we're impressed... They took a bath, brushed their teeth, and had daddy dog read them Goodnight Moon. They finally drifted off to sleep in the wee hours of the morning... all except for Owlie.

Don't miss our weekly story times. Baby and Me is Wednesdays at 10:30 am and Preschool Story Time is Wednesdays at 11 am, both held in the Story Time Room. To be reminded via text about Storytime, simply text the message @2c8k7d to the number 81010. Contact Michelle Humber with questions, mhumber@sublettecountylibrary.org
