The Summer Reading Challenge has now officially kicked off!

Every week we will be releasing an online puppet show or story plus an activity kit to go along with it to keep you reading and exploring this summer. Tuesdays will feature puppet show videos and stories, and toddlers and preschoolers can join Ms. Angie live via Zoom on Thursdays for Songs and Stories.

Video and Activity Kits available this week: 

Imagine Your Story video series!

This week’s story is called “The Three Wishes.” This is a very old tale of magic, mistakes, and learning to think before you speak! The flannel pieces were made by our dear friend and library legend Ellen Morrow, the Story Lady! She told this story to generations of children here at the library, and now we are continuing the tradition.

Watch this video and then call the library to arrange a pick up of the activity kit to go along with it. This week’s activity kits are: Magic and Wishes (ages toddler-1st grade); and Harry Potter: Hogwarts in Your Hometown (ages teens and tweens)

Call the library to set up a pick up time or an appointment to get your kits. Each kit includes crafts, stories, and more!

Check out our Imagine Your Story YouTube Playlist for earlier videos.
