Story Hour: Snails and Slugs (ages 3–5) [Virtual Event, Library members only; RSVP Required]
5 May 2021 @ 14 h 30 min - 15 h 30 min
For ages 3–5
3–5 year-olds and their grown-ups are invited to join us for our weekly interactive Wednesday Story Hour! This virtual program lasts 45 minutes and features songs, stories and hand rhymes in English, and is hosted by our children’s librarians and volunteers.
For this Story Hour, we’ll read tales of snails and slugs—both factual and fictional—that are full of surprises, including Snail Crossing by Corey R. Tabor.
This Story Hour will be hosted by Children’s and Teens’ Services Manager Celeste, along with volunteers Mary Wessels and Samuel Kuria, who will read books and lead you and your little one in songs and hand-rhymes during an interactive, live, virtual session. This participatory program is intended to encourage children to actively engage with stories. Plan to join in, sing along, and move around, as you would do in one of our in-person events. If you join in this virtual session, it will be as important as ever to model movement and song for your little one.
This virtual Story Hour is free for Library members, and registration is required. Registered participants will be sent an email link to join us via Zoom. Registration closes 24 hours before the event.
