Kids Will Blast Off During Library Program

From left, Carolyn Floyd, Samantha Bittner and Library Assistant Donna Jones, back, show off alien heads they made during Blackmur Memorial Library’s Summer Library Program. Each then told a story about their aliens -Fluffy, Karl and Freddie respectively – and what they did when they visited the Earth.

On the first day of Blackmur Memorial Library’s Summer Library Program “A Universe of Stories” kids got to learn about exploring the world around them through telling stories. 

The children acted out the folk tales “Why the Sun and Moon Live in the Sky” and “Why There is Day and Night” and learned about the history of storytelling and why the Sun and the Moon move the way they do in the sky. After they made alien heads and told their own stories about who was their alien and why they came to Earth. 

Next week, we’re going to Shoot for the Moon. We’ll learn some fun facts about our nearest neighbor in space, tell some more tales about the Moon and make Moon rocks! It will be out of this world!

The next session will be Wednesday, June 26, from 3-4:30 p.m. If you haven’t registered your child – ages 2nd through 6th grade -you can come by the library and fill out a form.

Story time is also scheduled Tuesday, June 25 at 9 a.m. for the younger children. They will be reading the stories “The Library Dragon” by Carmen Agra Deedy and “Little Whale” by Jo Weaver. We’ll also have a song-a-long and might even Do the Hokey Pokey.
