Doggies! Bunnies! Read One Book!

 

Winter is here, filled with icy wind that hits you right on the chin.  Sunshine is rare; gloom abounds in the trees so bare. What is one to do?  Outdoor choices seem few. Cheer up with a hot chocolate brew.  Come read to puppies and doggies that are waiting for you!

January and February are good months to rediscover the fun of being inside, cozy and snuggling up for a good read.  Why not share your favorite easy story or color-filled storybook with a friendly, welcoming furry face?  At 10:30 a.m. Saturday, January 14, 2017 and Saturday, February 11, 2017, read and meet the wagging tails and cheerful handlers of the KPETS reading team. Kids of all ages are welcome to read a favorite story, share an adventurous tale or colorful picture book with a canine pal.  Shake your tail, stop in and read with the doggies each month on the second Saturday!

Tired of snowballs, icy hands and chilly feet?  Looking for warmer hands-on fun?  Check out the Crafty Kids Time at 2 p.m. Saturday, January 18. 2017.  Thanks to local volunteers, the Littlestown Library now has two Saturday craft times each month.  What is being crafted up for January or February?  Put on your crafting apron, stop in and find out at the Littlestown Library.

Hope to settle in with a perfect read?  Enjoy sharing the story with your friends and neighbors? Adams County Reads One Book is just the read for you!   This winter’s nonfiction selection “The Indifferent Stars Above” by Daniel James Brown  is waiting for you at the Littlestown Library.  Join the local discussion, share your reading experience and learn from different viewpoints of the book.

February brings hearts, hearts, hearts - different colors, shapes and flavors for Valentine’s Day!  Visit and make a heart to share and one more to wear.  For hearty fun, visit the Littlestown Library at 1 p.m. Saturday, February 11 and join the afternoon crafts program.  Pink, red, purple or white, make special Valentines that really bring out the heart in you!  Kids of all ages are welcome. Program is free; youngsters 4-7 years old must be accompanied by an adult.

After all the Valentines are read, chocolates and candy hearts eaten, what else is left for February?  Good reads, of course! From warm, romantic stories, to amazing mysteries, spy-filled thrillers and classic novels, reading can soothe, enlighten and brighten the spirit in these winter months.  Is it too cold, too snowy, or too icy to visit the Littlestown Library?  Do not fear, the e-library is here.  Check out books to read, listen to audiobooks and music using your electronic device (smart phone, tablet or computer) and pass the chilly days away.

 When spring hops along in March, surprise visitors with tall ears might visit the Littlestown Library, thanks to the agricultural clubs of Adams County.  Stop in, and see!
