Virtual Storytime

Miss Sue is now holding a live story time online using Zoom every Thursday at 10:30. Contact her for the link. It will be the same “style” as always, with an older kids “challenge” at the end. Please take pictures and send them to Miss Sue when projects are made. She is making a collage of photos to hang at the library (for when we reopen) to see all the neat things we did during our “break”.
