Jessica Spinner, Childs' Librarian, and Laurel Adams, Director, have self-published a book entitled 'Li'l Ones Story Hour with Jessica' available on Amazon in paperback and ebook.  


The book shows how to get ready for a preschool story hour with book selections and relevant crafts appropriate for pre-school aged children.


Jessica's story hour meets every week on Tuesdays from 11 to noon.  The kids play and check in/out books and stuffed animals.  Then they read a book.  The easy craft follows and then there is a snack.  Kids usually play again before leaving.  All ages up to Kindergarten are welcome to attend.  It is a good time for parents or guardians to get together as well!

All books can be placed on hold or ordered with our SHARE button found on each web page.  Use your library barcode for your username and the last four digits for your PIN #.  Order books and we'll call you when they are ready!
