Fire Time Storytime!

Get ready to STOP, DROP and ROLL into our Fire Time Storytime with Miss Tammy and Miss Emily!

Meet us July 13th at the Aurora Branch or July 14th at the Dillsboro Branch. Each program begins at 11:00 a.m. Registration is not required, but is helpful for planning purposes. Please call 81-926-0646 to register.

Our feature story, of course, will be all about fires. After the story, we will break out into our “fire” themed stations which consist of movement games, sensory bins, and creativity stations. You will not want to miss the Take It, Make It Craft where spots are plentiful. As always, we will have our “field trip” outside to see our featured transportation. Photos and inspecting the vehicle will be our top priority while outside. But, wait…before you leave, you’ll have to “fuel up” with a grab-a-snack bag. We wonder who the lucky winner of our door prize will be this time? We look forward to seeing all you kids there!
