Our 6th annual Breakfast With Santa will be held on Saturday, December 17. Join us for food, stories, entertainment that includes juggler extraordinaire, Brian Wendling, and, of course, the big man himself, Santa Claus! Tell him what's on your Christmas List this year and snap some pictures that will last a lifetime. This program is free and one heck of a good time, so make plans to celebrate the season with Santa and the Atchison Library!
One thing we can all be thankful for is a good story. And when you can put several of them together and read them with a group of friends, well, nothing beats that! So join us this coming week (Thurs. 11/17 & Mon. 11/21) at 10:30 for a Thanksgiving themed Storytime. We'll be reading about cool cat pilgrims, panicked turkeys, and some kids who are grateful for the important things in life, like being able to wear your underwear on your head, if you want. And we'll do some fun activities to show what we're most thankful for too!
After the spooks and scares of Halloween, this week we lighten the mood at Storytime and celebrate No Shave November with stories about crazy moustaches that have a mind of their own! Join us at 10:30 on Monday (11/7) or Thursday (11/10), and you may even walk out with a fancy new moustache of your own!
Over the next two weeks, Atchison Library Storytime will be getting into the Halloween spirit with a selection of spooky stories and fun activities to prepare the kids for both tricks and treats! Come join us at 10:30 on 10/24, 10/27, 10/31, 11/3. We might even have some treats of our own to give away on Halloween morning!
This week at storytime we will be reading about robots and attempting to build a few of our own. Come on down Monday and Thursday (week of Oct. 10-13) and join us at 10:30!
This week we are reading books about how to play and be a good friend.
We had some silly fun this week with these books and everyone made a monkey after.
This week our books are all about learning to love who you are.
Summer Reading is cruising right along. This week we are bouncing, hopping, and jumping through storytime. We also have a lot of new books to keep you busy. Come on in and check some out.
Patrick Glancy is the Children's Librarian.
