It's October - time to get ready for HALLOWEEN! Our theme for the first week of October is Cats and Dogs!
Based on the "Mother Goose on the Loose" program, Toddler Time is a fun-filled thirty-minute interactive program that uses rhymes, songs, puppets, musical instruments, and more to stimulate the learning process of babies and toddlers. It is a proven method for planning and presenting programs that focus on the whole child.
Join us for this special program most Monday and Friday mornings at 10:30 AM in the library auditorium. Toddler Time is held in the auditorium on the lower level of the Library (view Library map). This fall, Toddler Time will also be broadcast online, live, on Mondays at 10:30 am (see below for details).

Today's Toddler Time: Moonlight the Halloween Cat
Today's Book: Moonlight the Halloween Cat by Cynthia Rylant
Book Synopsis: Softly padding through the darkness, Moonlight explores the world on her favorite night, Halloween. The town and countryside glow with shining stars. The wide yellow moon lights pumpkins, racoons, and children out having fun. . . .
Told in eloquently simple, lyrical words, with dazzling, luminous paintings, Moonlight evokes not just the excitement of Halloween, but something more - the reassuring warmth and friendliness that is a special part of this special night.

The "Mother Goose on the Loose" program helps children develop skills for success in a classroom. It helps children acquire a rich vocabulary and strengthens foundational reading skills. MGOL gives children opportunities to practice turn-taking, direction following, paying attention and showing appreciation to others. The age-appropriate listening, moving, and singing that takes place in MGOL exercises fine and gross motor skills, fosters speech development, keeps children’s interest for an extended period of time, gives children opportunities to make scientific observations regarding cause and effect, and provides a joyful introduction to the world of books and reading.
