Book smART Art Exhibition and Open House
Thursday, October 6, from 6 - 8 pm

Join us in celebrating Catherine Montgomery's beautiful illustrations in our library space. Catherine is an artist from Spencer who draws upon fables, folklore, and fairy tales for inspiration. The illustrations on display represent Sleeping Beauty, Yddgradsil (Norse mythology), Persephone (Greek), The Tiger and the Brahmin (India), The Frog Prince (African), Mulan (Chinese folk tale), Scheherazade (Arabian), and The Tailor who Sold his Soul (Mexican).

Refreshments will be served, and during the open house Catherine will talk about her art and answer questions about technique and how the artwork was created. She'll have a variety of art supplies and coloring sheets for adults and children to enjoy as they explore the world of storytelling and illustration. The project is made possible, in part, with public funds from NYSCA's Decentralization Program, administered regionally by the ARTS Council of the Southern Finger Lakes.

Story Hour Starts This Week!

Story Hour begins Tuesday - September 13.

For many children, Story Hour is a Tuesday morning tradition. They get to hang out at the library, listen to Miss Terry read stories, sing some songs, learn a fingerplay, get up and move, and play the parachute game. (no free falling involved)

At the end of it there's a snack and kids head upstairs to check out a book or one of the PreSchool backpacks filled with books and learning games.

On September 20 - a Special Guest is coming to story hour: kid's musician Johnny Only!  "He's fun," says Terry, the Story Hour lady. "He gets kids up and moving and singing. And he even sings a SHARK song!" You can find out more about him here. This program begins at 10 am.

While Story Hour is aimed at the preschool crowd, there are children of all ages up to five years. Some older homeschooling siblings have been known to tag along and help out, though the library is open for those who might want to do homework or look something up for a report.
You don't have to sign up for story hour - just drop in on Tuesday and check it out.

Got questions? Call the library.
