Saturday, February 24 @ 10:30 - 11:30 Children’s Storytime & Craft
Let's share in stories reflecting some of the holidays and occasions during the month of February. Join us for storytelling time as Miss Helene, the Youth Services Librarian, reads a selection of enjoyable books!
Storytime will include some favorite children's songs and fun movement, to be followed by a creative seasonal craft project. Appropriate for children ages 5 and up but all ages are welcome!
(Adult assistance with little ones recommended for craft activity.)

February 26 @ 12:30 - 1:30: Children’s Signing Storytime
Join us for an early afternoon storytime with an engaging seasonal theme for young children including books and music with the addition of American Sign Language signs presented by Jennifer Duncan from Signs at Play. The last 10-15 minutes of Storytime will be available for Q&A so parents and caregivers can learn more about ASL and using signs at home.

February 28 @ 5:00 - 5:45: Children’s Pajama Signing Storytime
Pajama Signing Storytime with Jennifer Duncan of Signs at Play is a cozy and fun event for families with young children. It combines the joy of bedtime stories with the added fun of baby sign language (ASL). Participants are encouraged to wear their pajamas and bring a stuffed animal for snuggles as they listen to a children's book being read and signed. This event is perfect for families who want to learn baby sign language for pre-verbal communication as well as promote literacy in a relaxed and comfortable setting. Not only will families get to enjoy a good night story and burn off early evening energy, but they'll also learn new signs that they can store in their parenting tool box. Get ready to settle in, sign along, and enjoy a good night's sleep after an evening Pajama Signing Storytime.
