Storytime with Our Own Miss Heather!!

It’s true! Online Storytime with Miss Heather starts tomorrow, Friday, April 3 at 10am! We’ll have stories, songs, and movement, and it’s interactive! Please make sure you have some room to move and some paper and crayons. Here’s the link to join: https://us04web.zoom.us/j/968216008
You can choose whether to have your video cam and microphone on or not – either way, you’ll be able to see and hear Miss Heather from the comfort of your own home!

Free Books!

Good news! Books from our shed are now on the front porch of the library for your reading enjoyment. Please practice “social distancing,” and hang onto whichever books you choose (no need to return them).
A note of caution – please don’t add to the books on the porch – we’ll accept donations again when the library is open. Thanks!
