Storytimes  for Families with Young Children! 

Saturdays  @ 10:30 am

May  2, 16, & 30 


“FAIRIES OF THE SEASONS” Puppet Show on Saturday May 9 @ 10:30 am
In this magical show, set on a handmade dress that twirls as the year turns, each season has its own fairy that takes care of changing the natural world accordingly. That is, until a grumpy gnome decides to rearrange all the season fairies so things will stay the same all year round!

Beautiful handmade fairy puppets and hand-felted animals invite young children to move, sing, and help the fairies of each season as they try find their way back. Recommended for ages 2-7.

“Flower Fun!” Hands-On Workshop for Preschoolers on Saturday May 23 @ 10:30 am
Come plant a rainbow garden at the library! Families with young children are invited to attend a special story hour to learn about flowers and help plant flowers in an indoor rainbow garden which will light up the sunny windowsill inside the library into the summer.

This program is provided free of charge by Coordinated Family and Community Engagement (CFCE) Mohawk Trail Engaging Preschool Families in Hands-On Science Explorations.
