Stop, Drop and Roll! It's Fire Safety Month!

To kick off fire safety month our friend Firefighter Josh visited us again and taught us yet another very important lesson! Stop, Drop and Roll!

First he read a book called Stop Drop and Roll by Margery Cuyler and then he gave us a demonstration before teaching our Junior Firefighters how to correctly stop, drop and roll. Finally be showed us his fire safety equipment, answered questions from the kids (and parents!) and gave everyone their own Junior Firefighter badge. Thank you again Firefighter Josh!

The Buzz on Bees!

Bees in the library! Yes! This Saturday we had a visit from The Barefoot Bee beekeepers. They brought real, live bees (see below for a picture of the portable hive), tools they use to work with the bees and also explained just how important bees are to our everyday life! It was quite a learning experience! For more information on bees stop by the Children's Room and check out a book today!
