The Pigeon, Duckling, Piggie, Elephant, Gerald, Knuffle Bunny, and Edwina are just a few of the characters you will be meeting at our September Story Times. Don’t Let The Pigeon Drive the Bus by Mo Willems is all about a pigeon who wants to drive a bus when the bus driver takes a break! This September is the 20th anniversary edition of the book! Does the pigeon get to drive the bus? NO? MAYBE? YES? You’ll have to come to Story Time to find out… hint, hint… stay off the road.
Storytimes at the Dillsboro Public Library are on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 10:30 am. Storytimes at the Aurora Public Library are Wednesdays and Fridays at 10:30 am. We can’t wait to see your smiling faces ready for a new adventure!
Hold your horses! The Horse Derby is heading to our children’s storytime in May. Create, name, and then race your horse to the finish line! After all that racing, your horse will be ready to head home to your stable.
We also have our “Tot Prom” storytime the 2nd week of May on May 9th at 10:30 am located at APL and then on May 10th at 10:30 am located at DPL. Roll out the red carpet and see the stars in your child’s eyes! Music, dancing, sensory, crafts, snack, and photo ops will make your tot feel like a star!
Since we will learn the Cool Cat Boogie at the prom let’s just wind up our May storytimes with the coolest cat in the library…Pete the Cat activities for all.
We can’t wait to see you at storytime! Don’t forget, storytime is every week on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 10:30 am at Dillsboro and Wednesdays and Fridays at 10:30 am at Aurora. The only week without regular storytime this month will be the week of Tot Prom, May 8-12. There will also be no storytime May 30th or 31st.
Spring is in the air and you know what that brings… baby animals! Our story times will be featuring cuteness overload of baby farm animals. Who can’t resist a fluffy bunny, or those cute little ducklings swimming on the pond? Wobbly legs are fun to watch as a colt is trying to walk and those adorable little pink noses of baby pigs. Your kiddos will be squealing with delight at all the baby animal activities we have planned.
Earth Day will also play a big part of our April story times as well. Take a trip through nature with Miss Tammy and the fun stories she has picked out for you!
We can’t wait to see all of those wiggly, squirming, smiling faces at our weekly story times. Happy Spring!
Hearts, love, red, and penguins usher in our February Children’s Storytime.
Celebrating Valentine’s Day stories will have your child’s creativity flowing with hearts and the colors red. R-E-D red, we can all spell red, but can we find books where the covers and spines are red or have the word “red” in the title of the book?
What better way to wind up our February Storytime than with those cute little fellows in tuxedo-looking feathers! That’s right: penguins! Look for further details on our upcoming Penguin Pals show on February 25th at the Aurora Public Library. We don’t mean the stuffed ones either! Real live penguins will be stopping by the library, so come to our penguin storytime to get ready to meet these feathered friends!
Happy Valentine’s Day to all of you!
Our storytime for children in January will start off with fun activities using the numbers in 2023. What do the words hibernation, arctic, and nocturnal all have in common? Why, animals of course! We cannot forget about snow, ice, and the color white to fit into our January storytimes also. There is going to be SNOW much fun! We hope you don’t miss out on this! There may be a surprise author study also on 2 special dates!
We hope to see all the kiddos at our storytime! Happy New Year!
January storytime has all kinds of cold-themed activities. We will start off the first week of January by celebrating our new year and incorporating the numbers 2, 0, 2, and 3 into our storytime. Books with numbers in their titles will be featured this week as well as New Year books… maybe books that just came out! Kids will enjoy making party poppers as well as participating in challenges involving building with 2 or 3 items. Imaginations will soar in this first-week challenge.
Happy New Year to everyone and we look forward to seeing you at our storytimes on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the Dillsboro Public Library and Wednesdays and Fridays at the Aurora Public Library at 10:30 am!
