Wednesday, June 10, 2015, 10:30 - 11:30 a.m.

Who are the heroes in your community? Heroes are everywhere! Come to Story Time June 10th and learn about the people in our community we think of as heroes.

We encourage all toddlers and preschool-aged children to attend. During this hour we enjoy music, sing silly songs, play exciting learning games and make simple crafts for you to take home. It's a wonderful time to meet new friends and learn about all the great resources the library has to offer. All the books that are shared during our storytime hour can be counted on your summer reading log to receive prizes!

Daycare, summer camp groups are always welcome.

Performer - Mr. Richard
