On Tuesday, August 18, we will create penguins during storytime. The supplies you will need are scissors, glue, black pen or marker, black and white paper, orange paper -OR- an orange crayon, marker or colored pencil, and something round for tracing (I used an old coffee can lid.)

Early Readers Book Club

August 12, 2020

Beginning in August, we will be adding an Early Reader’s Book Club to our regularly scheduled programming. This will be a program for children in grades K-2 who are learning to read independently. We will read an award winning or nominated story and create a book related project.

Our first meeting is this coming Monday, August 17th at 5:00 PM. We will meet on Facebook Live, and we will create a fun cat art project. For the project, the participants will need a sheet of construction paper (it can be whichever color they would like their cat to be) and a blank sheet of paper to make a background (preferably a different color than the first sheet of construction paper.) They will also need scissors and a variety of crayons, colored pencils or markers.
