Storybook Roundup starts soon!

Fall is just around the corner and it’s time for all the li’l cowpokes out there to get ready to mosey on down to the library for a weekly Storybook Roundup! We’ll be corralling some great stories and having a boot-stomping good time singing songs, chanting rhymes, playing games and doing other fun activities!!

Storybook Roundup is for children ages 3½ – 6 and is held in the children’s area of the library. It will be from 10:30 – 11:00am on Wednesdays beginning September 5, 2012. We will meet every Wednesday through May 15, except for the following holidays and spring break. There will be no story hour on Nov 21, Dec 26 & Jan 2, and March 20.

Please pre-register at the library so we know how many children to expect. I can’t wait to see you all in September!

~DARLA Harms-Becker, Story Hour Teacher
