We had superheroes in our presence. Batman (Will Baker) and Superman (Owen Baker) both listened to Halloween books, watched a short Halloween video, and participated in a Halloween craft. While no one was looking, Batman carefully pieced together a puzzle. A little ladybug (Chloe McClintock) also flittered through the library for storytime. We host a preschool storytime on Wednesdays at 10am. Superheroes, princesses, and their sidekicks (moms) are always welcome!
This holiday season, Mid-Continent Public Library is celebrating Charles Dickens with a special series of programs featuring his classic A Chirstmas Carol. The series includes library favorite David zum Brunnen's performance of A Night Before... A Christmas Carol, a lecture from Dickens scholar Dr. Elliot Engel, and a return to the area from Gerald Dickens, the great-great-grandson of Charles Dickens. The performances run November 29 - December 15. Registration is required for all events.
My favorite Sesame Street character would have to be Oscar the Grouch, that’s why I was happy to see there’s a National Grouch Day. Celebrated on October 15, this special day is dedicated to all things grouchy.
When the weather starts to turn cold, it’s always a sign for me to start knitting up my holiday handmade gifts. I am the type of knitter who waits until the last minute to start working on projects, so knits that are short, sweet, and to the point are perfect.
This year’s plan for holiday gifts: Hats.
I’ve already had the chance to place several books on hold for needlecrafts and have looked through some books with great patterns to base my hats on.
