I have fond memories as a grade school child of bookmobile day. I recall the excited anticipation I felt as the allotted time drew near when our class was allowed to step into this amazing library on wheels. I can still smell the scent of adventure bound in paper and the sight of beautiful covers that danced before my eyes, all begging to be the next to come home with me.
Calling all toddlers and parents! Clap your hands, stomp your feet, and wiggle your body at our storytime created just for you! Enjoy your time together as we share special books, sing enriching songs, and try our hands at some tricky fingerplays. You'll meet our little library helpers, Poppy, Millie, 'Fraidy, Percy, and others. Sometimes, you may even get to chase bubbles or do some coloring!
A new storytime at the MCPL Raytown Branch begins Thursday, March 3. It’s for babies 18 months and younger, and we are excited about it! It will begin at 9:30 a.m., and last for approximately 30 minutes. Each week, we’ll read books, sing songs, and help parents with book choices for young babies.
Storytime again! Squeaker has been wondering if being small is not so bad after all. He's been facinated with the idea that a Moose can be seven feet tall at the shoulders, and have a span of antlers of 6 feet. So, Squeaker had to set up a storytime about these wonderful creatures. And since Mary Beth, the story time lady wanted Squeaker to wear antlers, he thought that she should have to wear them too.
Calling all preschoolers and parents! Join the fun and make new friends at our Storytime created just for you!

As summer is fast approaching, are you and your family gearing up for all the exciting things that come in the warmer months?
The Boardwalk storytime presenters are doing the same thing in planning our summer themes. With this in mind, we are taking a break during the weeks of May 23, 2011 and May 30, 2011 in order to recharge our batteries and refresh our energies so that we can offer the best in summer storytimes. Please join us again for all our regularly scheduled times the week of June 6th.
