StorytimeStorytime is right around the corner!
We will begin on Friday, September 2, at 10:15.
Storytime is lots of fun; with reading, fingerplays, songs,
sometimes flannel board activities, puppets, and always a craft to make.
Storytime is intended for children 3-5 and their families or caregivers.
(Children 2 years old are welcome; give it a try and see if they’re ready.)
Early exposure to literacy is great for young minds,
and will be a lifelong benefit!

Remi the Redhawk from G-E-T High School
led the cheer for the kids as they showed off their reading logs.

HawkCome join the Galesville Public Library Book Club on September 12, 2016 at 7:00,
when we discuss H is for Hawk, by Helen MacDonald.
When falconer Helen MacDonald lost her beloved father, she was devastated.
This story tells her journey from crippling grief to something resembling grace
on the wings of another deadly bird of prey–a goshawk.
If you need a copy, a librarian can get one for you.
