Storytime Fun

      

It was such a pleasure to connect with families and share the joy of reading, singing, and playing during our virtual storytime from April – July. While there will be no new storytime events in August, you and your kiddos can still enjoy recordings of both Baby Storytime and Family Storytime on our Facebook page anytime through August 30.

Youth Services staff is busily and excitedly planning a brand new series of storytime fun for the Fall which will run from September 7 – November 25. Please check back in August for more detailed information. For now, we can happily share with you that we are planning three weekly virtual storytime events: a pre-recorded storytime that will premiere every Monday and be available anytime thereafter, a live baby/todder storytime on Tuesdays at 10 AM, and a live family storytime on Wednesdays at 10 AM.

We will also have a limited number of optional storytime kits available for participating families to check out that will contain supplies for enhancing the storytime experience.

Happy reading! Happy August! And we look forward to having your family join us for storytime in September.

There’s still time to catch Ken Lonnquist!

For my family, summer in the Chippewa Valley is all about music, so we were so excited to watch the Ken Lonnquist concert as part of the Summer Library Program. There is still time to watch the show with your family this week!

We’ll also be tuning in next Thursday, July 30th at 6 pm to hear the show on Converge Radio 99.9.

Our favorite spot to listen to the radio is on a blanket in the yard, under the trees. Where is your favorite place to enjoy a great song?
