A note from Mrs. Snoke...

Hi Kids,

Wow! It is hard for me to believe fall is here. It is such a wondrous time of year when the leaves turn and the colors are so beautiful. Fall never fails to amaze me. The squirrels are very busy where I live collecting nuts in preparation for winter. I have stopped my car for several squirrels trying to cross the road. Many times I’m trying to guess which way they are going to run. Yikes!

At the library we have been busy putting up fall decorations. There are a couple of games we are playing where you can receive a treat or sticker or both. You can count the leaves with little faces and let me know what you counted and I will give you a treat. I also have a baby owl who likes to hide and if you find her you will receive a sticker.

You can join Pumpkin Patch Readers which goes through November 26th. I have the log sheets at my desk. When your parents read 12 books to you and bring in your log sheet with the books listed you will receive a treat. If you read chapter books you receive a treat for every 3 books you read.

The library will host a Costume Parade during Toddler Time on Friday, October 31st. Be sure to invite your Grandparents and other family members to join us for this fun event.

You can also join us for the Trick or Treat Main Street Celebration. Track off the beaten path and come to the library for a make it, take it craft, scavenger hunt and a treat. Fun displays will be throughout the library. We hope to see you in your costume on Friday, October 31st between 3:00-6:00 pm.

For kids ages 3-5 years old, Rhythm & Rhyme Story Time will begin on October 28th through November 18th from 10:00-10:45 a.m. The sessions will include stories, finger-plays, rhythm instruments, songs, and fun.

There are lots of things to do at the library and lots of great books to enjoy. So visit us soon and join the fun.

Here's a poem you and your parents can enjoy together:

Pumpkin, Pumpkin

Pumpkin, pumpkin on the ground

(crouch down)

How'd you get so big and round?

(stretch arms out to sides, then into a big circle)

Once you were a seed so small,

(pretend to hold a tiny seed between two circles)

Now you are a great big ball!

(form arms into a big circle)

Pumpkin, pumpkin on the ground

(crouch down)

How'd you get so big and round?

(stretch arms out to sides, then into a big circle)
