In The Snow by Huy Voun Lee
or ... choose from many other "snowy" titles in the online Catalog.

Fifth Avenue Fun!

Fifth Avenue Fun!

Coyote and Wolf get into all kinds of mischief at the Tuesday 10 am and Wednesday 11 am storytimes at the Downtown Library next week. We are kicking off the winter storytime season with two of our favorite characters!

Silly Songs and Stories

I am really looking forward to silly singing and storytelling with my talented banjo buddy, Noah Haiduc-Dale, on December 29 at 10 am at the Downtown Library. We have a ridiculous story/song involving lots of snorts, clucks and quacks, to get the whole family in on the act. Noah has been entertaining us this past session at storytime and we love to march and dance to Jim Gill songs!

Snowy Blowy Not-So-Showy

Waiting for Winter, Anna’s Wish and Carl’s Snowy Afternoon are my three picks for a classy, quiet lap-read with just a little touch of winter magic. For a rowdier experience, you can join us at the Downtown Library Tuesday 10 am storytime on December 8th for Rabbit’s Gift and How Do Dinosaurs Say I Love You?
