Search and Find Contest at the Wakarusa Public Library

by Shondra Brown on February 23, 2015

March is our “Search and Find” contest.  Can you find the “Seussical” character hiding somewhere in the library?  Once you find it you’ll find your ticket needed to enter the drawing for a prize.  The contest will run from March 2 – 21, and the drawing will take place on March 23.

Book Bites will take place on March 5, at 10:15 a.m.  Children will hear the story, “Fox’s Garden” by Princesse Camcam and participate in either a craft or an activity related to the story. No registration is required, and all ages are welcome to attend.

Story Hour, ages 3 – 5 years old, will hear “Silver Stories” from Caldecott Honor books and participate in an activity and/or craft. March 9 and March 10, 10:15 – 11:00 a.m., registered children will hear “Alexander and the Wind-Up Mouse” by Leo Lionni.

The Friends of the Library will be meeting on March 10, at 1:00 p.m.  This is a group of volunteers that advocate and assist the Wakarusa Library. Anyone interested in the library may attend.

Beginning Story Hour, children ages 18 – 36 months, will shake their sillies out and sing to a story on March 11, at 10:00 a.m.  Registered children will enjoy a craft or an activity, and will hear “The Bus for Us” by Suzanne Bloom. 

Christian Fiction author Natalie Replogle will be visiting the library on March 26, at 6:30 p.m. for an author chat and signing.  Replogle is the author of the Come to My Rescue romance series and will have books available for purchase that evening.  Refreshments will be served, no registration is required.
