The Lovely Month of May

There is a lot going on in May to look forward to:

- Every Wednesday in May at 6:30 p.m. join me (Ms. Patty) upstairs at the library for Bedtime Stories. We'll share songs and stories to end your day. This is best for children 2-6, but parents often stick around as well. I'll be in my jammies, so feel free to come in yours too.

- Monday, May 2nd at 10:30 a.m. we have a special Wonderful Ones session in honor of Children's Book Week. For children ages 9-23 months with caregiver, Ms. Eileen and Ms. Patty will share stories and games. Please register in advance. (We have give-aways!)

- Friday, May 13th at 4 p.m., one of my favorite performers joins us at RML for a Magical Event! Christina the Magician will delight us all with sleight of hand in her charming and gentle way. This will be fun for all ages,but please register in advance so we know how many to expect. (I've been trying to get Ms. Eileen to book Christina for two years, so I'm hoping for a big turn-out!)

- Friday, May 20th, at 1:15 p.m., Not-Too-Old-For-Storytime: Spring Edition. Storytime alums and others in grades K-2 are invited to join Ms. Eileen and Ms. Patty for stories, games, a craft, and an afternoon snack. This is an early dismissal day and we will meet the kids at the school and walk them to the library. We often need a few adults to help safely collect the children and guide them to the library, so let us know if you'd like to help. You must register for this popular program, and kids who haven't come before are given first preference.

Hoping to see a lot of you all in May at RML.

(P.S. I somehow forgot to post about our last storytime sessions two weeks ago; our theme was Bunnies and we made bunny ears that were very cute.)

(P.P.S. It's necessary to end registered storytimes early because we need to use the storytime room to store collected books for the book sale. Another example of our limited space at RML, and one more reason to support the upstairs renovations.)
