March in the Children's Room
 
Story Hours (every week):
For children, we hold Story Hour every Thursday at 10:30 a.m., and Story Hour with puppets every Saturday at 10:30 a.m.
 
In addition, our very own Elyce will be hosting a series of Children's Story Hour programs, every weekday from March 13 through the end of the month, with a special theme for each day:
 
* Mondays at 10:30 a.m. (3/13, 20 and 27) are Monster Mondays with stories and craft activities all about monsters.
 
* Tuesdays at 10:30 a.m. (3/14, 21 and 28) are Twisty Tuesdays, featuring stories with yoga poses.
 
* Wednesdays at 10:30 a.m. (3/15, 22 and 29) are Wacky Wednesdays, with stories from Dr. Seuss and related craft activities.
 
* Thursdays at 10:30 a.m. (3/16, 23 and 30) are Throwback Thursdays, celebrating classic children's stories, with crafts after.
 
* Fridays at 10:30 a.m. (3/17, 24 and 31) are Fairy Tale Fridays, with fairy tales read aloud, followed by fairy house-making.
 
On Saturdays, and for the After School Crowd:
 
On Saturday, March 11, we'll hold a St. Patrick's Day crafts program at 2 p.m.
 
On Saturday March 18, we'll celebrate Kite Month in the Children's Room with a kite-making program at 2 p.m.
