At Home Story Time Beginning This Week

Introducing Pete the Polar Bear

Join Pete the Polar Bear once a week during the month of May on his adventures.  Where will he go?  What books will he read?  Pete and Miss Lisa will make some fun crafts and show you some great experiments that you can do at home.  Pete will have suggestions of other awesome activities for you to try.  You can see a new Pete the Polar Bear adventure each Wednesday  on the library's Facebook page and on Twitter.
