Program Updates: S'more Stories and Crafts continue!

If you haven’t caught an episode of S’more Stories with Miss Alyisha yet – tune in today! There’s a new episode every Friday, but you can catch them any day online under the Storytimes & Events column at

These gently creepy fall stories are perfect for preschool and early elementary aged children. You can pick up a pre-bagged craft in the Children’s Room* to go along with the theme each week! If you pick up your craft bag before viewing storytime, you can jump right in with the craft as soon as the story is done. And when it’s over, you just might hear your kids begging for s’more scary stories!

*New craft kits are put out each Friday morning in October and are available while supplies last. Please take only one craft per child.
