Writers! The Highlights Foundation Offers a Free Online Class

As part of our commitment to help you continue learning and being entertained during the COVID-19 crisis, we are sharing a variety of virtual tours, live camera experiences at zoos, and online story times.

Have you ever wanted to learn about writing and creativity from teachers from the Highlights Foundation? They are now offering a free online educational opportunity featuring Sarah Aronson and Tara Lazar. Pop over to their site to see the previous videos and find out when they’ll next do a virtual get-together for greater interactivity. Special thanks to one of our Writing Club members, Jamie, for letting Shannon know about this great opportunity!

The Highlights Foundation also offers podcasts about writing, including this one with Ashley Hope Perez on Holistic Writer Care.

Some Fun Crafty Goodness from Story Time!

Have you brought your children to Story Time yet? There’s always something great going on thanks to Miss Anne’s creative efforts! Story Times are Thursday mornings at 10:30am and include a story, fun activities, and a craft. Early learning basics are reinforced, including basic socialization, participation, shapes, colors, numbers, and curiosity is stoked.

Story Time at the Library!

Every Thursday from 10:30am-11:30am we have Story Time at the library! We do Music & Motion activities and songs like Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes, Going on a Bear Hunt, and other fun things that get us moving (and shake the wiggles out before we settle into a good book). Then we read one of our many great children’s picture books while sitting in super-comfy beanbag chairs! We then move to our activity table and do a craft that connects to what was just read. If time allows we play with Legos, Connect Four, Candy Land, or something similar, emphasizing sharing, patience, communication, and kindness. Come join us!
