What happens to the socks that go missing in the laundry? Two ladies from Omaha have found out and together wrote and illustrated The Sneaky Sock Gremlin. Join us on Saturday July 9 at 10:30 when they read the story, lead some activities for the kids, and autograph their books. Maybe you’re interested in self-publishing your own book and you’d like to talk with them about their experience??
On Monday, June 6, Valley toddlers and preschoolers gathered for the first “Read With Me: Stories and Activities” event with staff from DC West. Sue Guerrero, Family Facilitator, and Barbara Young, Early Childhood Specialist, led a program using the book Chicka Chicka Boom Boom as their theme. After listening to the book, children created their own coconut trees, their own books, and some bracelets and necklaces. You can view more photos on our Facebook page. .
Eleven princesses from Valley met with Cinderella at the library on June 14. Cinderella read them a story, played “Princess, Princess, Frog,” and taught them tea party manners. Thank you Cinderella for taking a break from your royal duties to visit us. You can view more pictures on our Facebook page.
Donna (whose clown name is “Rainbow Trout”) came to the library on June 8 to teach us balloon twisting. She taught us how to twist a bumblebee, a sword, a flower and a hat. Some kids got very creative! The library presented this in partnership with the Twin Rivers YMCA Summer Camp. You can see more pictures on our Facebook page.
