Kids enjoying Story HourStory Hour

Each Tuesday at 10:00, the Donnellson Public Library holds Toddler Time for preschool children, ages 1-3.  During this program, kids are read short books, do some finger plays or a song, and are allowed some free time to play.

Wednesday Story Hour is a program to teach young children ages 3-6 to appreciate books, and to learn to socailize with others while making a simple take-home craft.  We do a little singing, playing, dancing, and especially reading!  Each week, the Librarian develops a theme, either linked to the calendar, holidays, or skills-learning for preschoolers.  After reading at least three picture books, we do a simple make and take craft.  Story Hour kids need to be accompanied by a responsible care-giver, either a daycare provider, parent, grandparent, or older sibling (over 12 years of age.)

During the Summer Reading Program, young children will be able to earn prizes by reporting on the reading they do at home with their parents and siblings.
