This Week at the Library

It’s spring time!  Join us for Story Time on Tuesday morning, April 12, at 10:00 a.m. as Gerri reads stories and leads activities about “Flowers and Gardens.”

On display this month in the Emily Pinnick Room is “Artwork from Meade High School Students.”  We have a variety of paintings and drawings for you to enjoy, as well as some ceramic pieces.

For the Pre-Schoolers

isyourmamaalamaThanksgiving is the theme of November for Pre-School Story Time.  Gerri will read books about  Thanksgiving Turkey on the 17th.  Then, on the 24th, she will be reading stories about Pilgrims.  As always, there will be fun activities and crafts for the little ones.  Story Time takes place every Tuesday at 10:00 a.m.

The Pre-School and KinderPrep classes from Meade Grade School will be joining us on Wednesday to visit the library.  This is “Kansas Reads to Pre-Schoolers Week,” so we will read the book Is Your Mama a Llama? by Deborah Guarino.  This is the Kansas State Book for the year 2015, chosen to celebrate the importance of reading in the lives of young Kansans.
