February Puppet Shows!

This month we had two awesome puppet shows here at the library! Magpie Puppets presented Eeyore's Birthday and Lindsay and Her Puppet Pals presented several fun stories including The Emperor's New Clothes! Everyone had a great time!

Live Learn Act Photo Display

The Children's Room has partnered with local non-profit Live Learn Act (LLA) to SHOW ME YOUR SCHOOL! Students around the world, including Winchester elementary school children, have been participating in LLA's global photography project, which asks children around the world to connect by envisioning what it would be like to attend each other's school. Results from this project will be on display in the Children's Room throughout the month of February. Come in and explore children's snapshots of life in their schools. Check out a few photos of the displays below!

We built Smart Spinners in LEGO Science Workshop today. We also watched a video of these same models being demonstrated on the International Space Station. Too bad we couldn't make our spinners float around the room too!

Playing with Our Food...

Today during Preschool Storytime Club we read books all about food, after all the stories were read we used different fruits and vegetables to paint pictures. Every once and a while it's okay to play with our food... with permission from a grown-up, of course!
