Storytime Programs - Summer 2016, Week Five

Welcome to the fifth week of of our summer storytimes.  In addition to our weekly storytimes, there are numerous special events happening so be sure to check our Events Calendar, give us a call, or stop by the desk in the Early Learning Center if you would like more information.  We hope that you'll be joining us and continue to make a visit to the library part of  your summer routine.   Don't forget to track your summer reading time and turn in your log before the end of July to receive all prizes!  Below you will find some of the books, rhymes, and fingerplays we are presenting this week.

Tiny Tales  (For babies 0-23 months and an adult caregiver)

Due to the Independence Day holiday there was no Tiny Tales program.  Be sure to join us next week, July 11 at 10:00 am.  The 6:00 pm program will be replaced by the summer picnic.  Check our events calendar by clicking on the link above for more information on this fun activity for the whole family!

If you have not had time to check out any new books, log into TumbleBooks from our homepage and choose from numerous picture books to read with your toddler on your device at home.  All you need is your library card!

If you've never taken a look at TumbleBooks, we highly recommend it. TumbleBooks is an online collection of animated, talking picture books which teach kids the joys of reading in a format that they'll love.  In addition to picture books, you will also find chapter books, nonfiction books, videos, puzzles and games.  Just click on the TumbleBooks link in the left hand sidebar of our Home Page, sign in with your Gail Borden Public Library card and you are good to go!  You can access TumbleBooks without a card when you are at the library.

In the story of  Cloudette, the little cloud discovers that there are many things she can do despite her size.  Talk with your child about the many things he is able to do for himself at such a young age. Can he dress himself?  Can he count to ten or even higher?  Can he write his name?  Praise him for his accomplishments!  What would he like to learn next?
