Today is Thursday and it’s another story time day!! I’ve missed the past few story times and I can’t wait to read to my wee ones again : ) Today’s story times are at 10:00 am for infants and 11:00 am for preschoolers. Since it has been so windy we will read lots of books about wind and kites. Children will get to make a paper kite to take home with them!
On the note of story time, I just sat down with a friend of mine yesterday. We have decided to start our new Spanish story time “Biblioninos” on Monday, April 30 at 4:30 pm. This story time is designed for children who speak Spanish and those children who want to be introduced to the language. We will have a combination of Spanish and English songs and books with a craft activity afterwards. After years of wanting to do this, I am so happy to finally be able to start this story time!!
Yesterday we had our Wednesday afternoon story time where we read all about libraries and got to make our own books and bookmarks afterwards. We had great attendance and the books were quite cute…including my son’s, which was all about his best friend Alex.
To continue in our celebration of National Library Week, we will be having our SNAPSHOTVA Day today! Every year the Library of Virginia sponsors SNAPSHOTVA Day and asks patrons all over Virginia to take pictures in the library and send feedback about how important libraries are in their area. Don’t be surprised if we snap a shot of you doing something fun at the library today!
And finally, 100 years ago today the Titanic set sail on its fateful voyage. To commemorate the massive ship’s journey, we have the Radford University Chemistry Club coming this afternoon to demonstrate “Will it Sink or Will it Float?” If you haven’t seen this demo before, it is not one you want to miss. It’s for all ages so bring the whole family this afternoon at 4:00 pm.
Whew…what a Tremendous Thursday we have planned!
I hear the little ones calling for stories. Yay!!
