Summer Reading Program, Sid the Science Kid

The Baldwin Boettcher Branch Library is bringing "Sid the Science Kid" to our summer reading program.  Look for our summer reading program for details of what day, time and how to sign up for this program.  Class space is limited.  We will conduct a pilot 3 day Sid Camp (Science Investigate Discover).  It will be held in June for three days and will only allow 4 and 5 year olds into the program.  No moms.

Preschool Story Time

Pre-school Story time at Baldwin Boettcher is one of our newer story times.  We had our Family story time but due to staffing and time; four, five and six year olds have never had their own story time.  However, they now are able to come to the library on Tuesdays at 11 am.   This is the time to bring the children who need to develop skills for school.  They will experience cutting, coloring, pasting, glueing and reading in a group.  Sometimes, the children even get to paint.  So, yes, we get messy and experience new things.  Come join Ms Nancy and her regulars at story time to get ready for school or just to have some good old fashion fun.

It's Toddler Time!

Thursday mornings, 10:30 am, at the Baldwin Boettcher Branch Library, in the Study/Meeting room you will find our adventurous Ms Nancy and her group of toddlers.  This high energy group loves to sing, mimic finger plays, dance, and listen to books.  Sometimes the wheels on the bus may change subjects according the topic of Ms Nancy's story time.  A cow bell may clang, the tail may swish, the eyes go blink and finally the voice of the cow says moo.  The familiar tune with different words allows the children to pick up the words to add to their vocabulary at a faster pace.  Please come join us and enjoy story time while picking up tips on early literacy from Ms Nancy.

Now that tax season is over and we can all relax...
