Leaves, pumpkins, turkeys, scarecrows, pies, harvest, squirrels, orange, red, yellow, and brown are all things happening in our November Storytime. What did The Leaf Thief really steal? And If You Give a Moose a Muffin what does he do with it? Or why are there Too Many Pumpkins? But the true question is what did The Scarecrow do to help the crow? Activities galore surrounding this thankful month of Fall. We look forward to seeing you and your family there to learn all of the answers to the questions above. Maybe we will learn How to Catch a Turkey!
Aurora Public Library storytimes are Wednesday and Friday at 10:30 am.
Dillsboro Public Library storytimes are Tuesday and Thursday at 10:30 am.
We hope the entire family can join us to kick off the Holiday season on November 26th at 12:00 p.m. at APL to watch the movie “The Muppet Christmas Carol.” See you there!
Get ready for teddy bears (Winnie-the-Pooh and Corduroy are excited), dots (green, red, purple, blue, any color you choose), pirates (don’t worry, we won’t make you walk the plank) and apples (we are so glad Johnny planted all those trees) to start off our September Fall Storytime Programming. Rhymes, songs, dances, activities and crafts will have your little ones waiting for the next adventure here at the library.
Bloomers from our local daycare/preschools will have their special time on Mondays. Sprouts will be getting ready to grow in our program on Tuesdays (DPL) and Wednesdays (APL). Seedlings will start to sprout and then bloom into wonderful listeners and avid goers to the library on Thursdays (DPL) and Fridays (APL).
All times for our programming start at 10:30 a.m. We look forward to seeing all of you here. Just a reminder that our session plans are geared towards each groups age; Bloomers (preschool/kindergarten visits only), Sprouts (3-6) and those Seedlings (ages 0-2 years old). See you soon!
Oh yeah, teddy bears, pirates and apples are welcome to join you!
Storytimes Are Starting
The Aurora Public Library District will begin in-person Storytimes in June. We’re looking forward to exploring the Summer Reading theme “Tails and Tales.” So that we can still operate within social distancing guidelines, children must be registered in advance.
Here’s how it will work:
- Registrations will be limited to 5 family units at Aurora Storytimes and 6 family units at Dillsboro Storytimes.
- Each family will sit together at a table or on the floor.
- Children need to remain at the table while stories are read.
- Crafts will be provided and families may either make the craft at the library or take the kit home to complete.
- Tables and chairs will be disinfected prior to and after each Storytime session.
- Masks are strongly recommended for adults and teens who are not fully vaccinated.
Stephanie has missed all of our young patrons and is eager to share some of her favorite stories about animals. Everyone in the family is also invited to participate in our Summer Reading Challenges to earn prizes while enjoying all the fun of reading great books.
