Hello everyone! School has just started and I know many of you have kids starting school this fall.I hope you all have a wonderful school year and remember that the library (and I) are here to help you and your child succeed in school. 
September also means that we are gearing up for Storytime to start again. And we are busy planning fall events at the library.
This email newsletter format is a new way of letting you know what is going on at the library. I hope you find it informative and I always welcome your feedback. I also appreciate your patience as I try to figure out this new system! I apologize ahead of time for any 'weirdness' associated with me learning how to do this efficiently!
Happy Reading!  Cathy Chesher - Youth Services Librarian

Storytime begins September 13 and continues through December 13.
Storytime is a forty minute program of high quality books, stories, songs, fingerplays, movement, puppets and more for children and a parent or caregiver. Storytimes are designed to enrich and support Early Literacy skills in a fun and engaging way. This storytime is best suited for children ages two through five. There is no need to register. Come when you can.
