STORTIMES are B-a-a-ack This week!

Baby PlayGroups and Preschool Storytimes start up this week throughout the Library system. They will run for 7 weeks in a row, or through the end of April.

Toddlers who have been in Baby PlayGroups, and are aging over 2 years old, are invited to join Preschool Storytimes next. Don't worry .... you will find other babies and toddlers (they are "the younger-siblings") and still enjoy the programs too.

My friend Mother Goose and her very fine Gander will be entertaining us with her merry and magical tales and rhymes on Tuesday, March 2 at 10:00 am at the Downtown Library. If you have encountered Mother Goose at the Kerrytown Market, where she has delighted hundreds of families over the years, you know you are in for a treat!

Kid Bits -"I" is for Inuit

The "Letter Box" featured "I" this week .... "I" is for Inupiaq ... and "I" is for Inuksuk ... and "I" is for igloo too.
Ms. Rachel told "A Whale of a Tale" in Preschool Storytime this week when there was not a bit of blubber left in the igloo for the little boy to eat. It is an ageless tall tale from Inupiaq tradition. Other titles that may be of interest would be:

Make Your Own Inuksuk "silent messengers" on the tundra.
Polar Lands.
