THE BACON FREE LIBRARY for kids
This fall, you will still find something fun for kids on Mondays and Tuesdays at 10am on the grounds of the BFL. Mondays will be stories & songs, which combines listening & dancing, while Tuesdays will be our traditional story time. We look forward to seeing you there!
In case of inclement weather on a Monday or Tuesday morning, we will switch to a story time over Zoom. Check the website or call if you are unsure.
Read the book, Chalk by Bill Thomson one page at a time on the grounds of the library. When you’re done scan the QR code on the last story board and enter the raffle to win a copy the book. Or use this link to enter. Make sure to draw something with the chalk you’ll find in the box at the end! Maybe it will come to life.
The StoryWalk®Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, Vermont and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library.
