Story Time

It’s rainy again. The snow recedes everyday and flood advisories are the norm this time of year. No bright yellow forsythia or crocus in bloom for us in the mountains yet, but there are signs of spring. We’ve seen robins, mountain bluebirds, and a few patches of grass revealing themselves from under the snow.

Is there a better place to be on a rainy day than the library?

Many Thursday mornings, we enjoy Children’s Story and Craft Hour with Mrs. Melody. Each week, kids gather excitedly on the Unites States map at the McCall Public Library to sing, dance, listen to stories, and create crafts corresponding with a weekly theme. Melody expertly draws children in with her kind and inviting way. And it’s not only kids who love hearing her read stories with fun characters and positive messages.

Alice is usually front and center. All the kids are eager to listen and share their hilarious comments and observations. Melody is a local celebrity too! We saw her one day on the greenbelt near the library and Alice was star struck.

The McCall Public Library is in the early stages of an expansion plan that will increase the library’s size from 4,800 to 12,000 square feet. The expansion will create more space for the programs and events the library offers the community including our favorite, Story Time!   HipstamaticPhoto-493326042.830479

Reading is an important part of our lives and libraries help encourage a lifelong love of books. We’re so lucky to have this amazing resource in our community!

    That was a fun Alice in the Morning.    Thank you Audrey   I loved Alice posing with the sculpture.   We had a nice rain yesterday More predicted for today and tomorrow, when a friend, Roz Long, is due to come from Santa Barbara for lunch after she picks up her finished taxes.   So nice she brings her taxes here as we get to see eachother twice a year.  JB is coming by with the boys Saturday.    Colleen and Peter are having Easter for everybody.   Think I’ll take deviled eggs.   Love you.
