Miss Jennifer's Storytime Potpourri!

For our last storytime of the year (sniff sniff), I chose some of my favorite stories and songs. We hope to see everyone at our “Get Creative at Your Library” summer program. We have all sorts of fun performers coming to do shows: music, petting zoo, puppets and more. Flyers with more information are available at the library, and registration starts Monday, June 8th. Our schedule and registration dates for our fall storytimes are still being determined. I’ll make sure to post more as soon as I know! I’ll probably do some blog postings and restructuring over the summer, too. Thanks, everyone for another wonderful storytime year!

Silly Hat Song

On my head, I wear my hat.
It is such a silly hat
That my head will wiggle waggle to and fro
Where else can my silly hat go?
[Repeat using foot, elbow and knee.]
