Next Story Hours: Mon. and Tues., Oct. 30-31 at 10:30am
NOTE: There will be no Story Hour on October 23-24, as the library staff will be away at the New England Library Association Conference.
On Monday, come to the Children's Room to hear stories about not-so-creepy monsters and Halloween night! Afterwards, make a monster puppet to bring home. Then come back on Tuesday for a Spanish storytime with special guest Edda Cardenas to hear stories about the holiday Dia de los Muertos. Learn to count playful skeletons (esqueletos) in Spanish and make skeleton decorations!
