Last week I read about dinosaurs celebrating Chanukah, so this week I read about how they celebrate Christmas. Of course, it follows the same formula. It appears that the dinosaurs may be naughty, but they turn out to be very good indeed at the end.
It was difficult for me to tell the large group on Monday that this is the last week of storytimes until the end of January. One person booed – which made me laugh. When I reminded them at the end of the storytime, I told them they were allowed to boo that decision – and they did.
Traditionally attendance has dropped way off on the days leading up to Christmas. We never have storytime during school vacation weeks. We will take off the first 2 Mondays of January, and then the next Monday is a holiday, so we won’t start again until January 25.
Please come to the library often during this storytime break. We will offer Dance Parties for very young children on Tuesday January 5, 12 and 19. The music begins at 10:00 am.
There will be a Pajama Jam on Wednesday, January 13 at 6:30 pm. Bernadette Baird will be here to lead us in song, stories and dancing. This is most appropriate for preschool children.
