Preschool Story Hour

Calling all preschool parents! We’ll be sharing exciting stories, fun crafts, and healthy treats this year twice a month. The next story hours will be held on Wednesday, October 8th and Wednesday, October 22nd at 10:30 a.m.

We had three visitors at our last story hour and we learned about the Passenger Pigeons Extinction. We will read the, “Leaf Man” and create a paper cup craft along with a treat at our next story hour.
