Our last Bingo night of the summer! We had lots of fun and won lots of awesome prizes. My favorite prizes were the book magnets, very funny! See you next summer at BINGO night.
Well, at least one librarian just noticed that whenever the children have both sides of their reading log complete - all the prizes and all the tickets, that they are supposed to get Riverman Hockey Tickets. Oops! So, if you have completed the program and have not gotten your Riverman Hockety Tickets, please come by and let us know!
Tonight is Bingo night at the library! It starts at 6:30 PM in the Drake Family - Heartland Bank Community Room! The whole family is welcome!
At story hour today we read some books with a beat. We read Jungle Drums by Graeme Base, Farmyard Beat by Lindsey Craig, and We're Going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen. We even found a bear hiding in a cave in the library! It's hard to see him in the picture but he is hiding underneath lots of kids!
Today we had some budding actors and opera singers at the library. The Chicago Children's Opera House came to tell us about a story written by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart called The Magic Flute. We even got to join in the fun and become part of the story. You can see some of the performance on Facebook.
Children's Author, Sandy Miller, came to the library on Thursday to read us her new book Rink-A-Dink-Dink. Children enjoyed hearing the perilous tale of three ornery bugs, a roach, an ant, and a flea. We also created our very own walking sticks and played Bug BINGO!
The Master Gardener/University of Illinois Webinar on Where the Wild Things Grow - Native Plants is on Tuesday, July 14th from 1:30 PM to 2:30 PM at the library.
