Preschool Power via Zoom
Sessions are pre-recorded

Join Miss Bonnie for stories, songs, fingerplays and more.  The library building is closed, but we can meet online!  Reading, rhyming, singing, and talking inspire literacy and language development, the foundations of learning. Storytime is structured to help show parents and caregivers how they can help their child interact with books and develop early literacy skills, too!   Especially for ages 3 to 5. Visit our Preschool Power YouTube playlist to view the videos.

The theme for the January 22nd session is Over, Under, Around and Through!

Every other Thursday beginning January 7 through May 27, 2021

Arnold, illustrated by Linda Davick.  Singing and dancing along are highly encouraged! Recommended for children (1-6 years old) and their caregivers to share together.  To watch any of the videos in the Sing-A-Song series, please visit the YouTube playlist.
