Squirrel Time!

Come enjoy a magical morning of story time, puppet shows, and more here at the High Meadows Library. This Tuesday at 10:30 a.m. our theme for story time will be all about our furry little friends called squirrels. Come sit back, relax, and enjoy our puppet show, followed by silly songs and a craft where you can make a squirrel puppet of your very own! Our story times are open to toddlers and preschoolers alike. If you can't make it this Tuesday, don't fret, our story times are held every Tuesday at 10:30 a.m. I hope to see you here!
