Missing community

This piece in the Washington Post really resonated with me (click on the link below). We are part of a community and being isolated, as we are, has really been difficult. Look forward to the day when things get back to how they used to be. A roomful of children, books and songs, laughter and smiles. We will get to the other side eventually.

Storytime links

I didn’t realize I could post direct links to videos posted on Facebook. So, here are the two recent storytimes I did. Hope you can access them. Miss you all! (If you get “video unavailable” just reload the web page, that seems to fix it)

New books!

Got some new picture books in, and since you can’t come in and browse them in person, why not reserve them online for curbside pick-up?
