Story Time

Come to Story Time, a fun early literacy program for kids six and under.  Join us for interactive stories, songs, rhymes, and crafts.  The early literacy practices featured each week help build a foundation for the lifelong love of reading and learning.  For parents and caregivers, Story Time offers an opportunity to experience early literacy strategies in action, discover great books and resources for home use, and socialize with other parents afterward.  Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday sessions all share a theme with something new and exciting each week. Sign up is not required. Story Time is held Tuesdays at 5:30 p.m., and Wednesdays and Fridays at 10:45 a.m. in the Staggs Community Room. May dates are May 3, 4, 6, 19, 22, 13, 17, 18, 20, 24, 25, 27, and 31.

Spring Break in the Library

Look at the fantastic time our community had in the Library during Spring Break!  The Huntsville Audubon Society sponsored "An Avian Adventure."  Teens made their own macrame wall art. Children combined dance lessons with coding classes to learn the basics of animation. What a great week of learning and fun!
