It's October - time to get ready for HALLOWEEN! Our theme for the first week of October is Cats and Dogs!
Story Time programs introduce young children to books, rhymes, songs, crafts, and other fun activities. Library Story Time incorporates the early literacy skills that children must master before they can learn to read. Story Times are designed for children 3-5 years old, though all ages are welcome. The program lasts approximately 45 minutes and caregivers are asked to participate with their children. Story Time is held in the Children's Department. This fall, Story Time will also be broadcast online, live, on Tuesdays at 10 am (see below for details).

Today's Book: Cat Nights by Jane Manning and Boo To You! by Lois Ehlert
Cat Nights: Felicity the witch begins turning herself into a cat as soon as she is old enough, and even though the rules say that she can only turn back into a witch eight times, she does it again on the ninth night. For her entire life Felicity has wanted to turn herself into a cat. But witches may only perform this particular spell when they are 263 years old. Finally (finally) the magical day arrives-Felicity Witch's 263rd birthday! Happy Birthday! Poof! Now Felicity has a sleek coat and a long, graceful tail. She has a soft nose and speedy paws! Felicity loves being a cat. Will she ever be happy as her ordinary witchy self again? Meow.
Boo To You!: When the neighborhood cat tries to crash the mice's harvest party, the mice have a plan to scare the intruder away. The harvest garden is bursting with delicious vegetables, the pumpkins are decorated and lit, and the mice have their costumes ready. Everyone is looking forward to the annual Halloween-night feast. Scary Cat wasn’t invited to the party, but he seems to think he’s coming anyway.
