  5. Counting Cheerios

    Southeast Little Ones counted Cheerios in storytime this week.  As they walked into storytime, each Little One received a baggie with their Cheerio necklaces and some extra Cheerios for snacking.

    One little Ninja Turtle got to snacking right away!

    We read the Cheerios Counting Book and Sandra Boynton’s One, Two, Three on our big screen.

  7. "It’s still National Library Week. You should be especially nice to a librarian today, or tomorrow. Sometime this week, anyway. Probably the librarians would like tea. Or chocolates. Or a reliable source of funding."

  9. Lives Change @ Your Library!

    National Library Week Family Storytime

    Hooray for National Library Week! We celebrated at storytime this week with lots of books about libraries:


    Kevin Goes to the Library
    Book! Book! Book!
    Dogs Loves Books
    Biscuit Loves the Library

    National Library Week Family Storytime

    We made shiny collages out of old books and magazines.  By recycling the books and magazines, we gave them new life.  Lives really DO change at the library.  How has the library changed your life?

    We’ll see you next week for some leaping, croaking froggie stories!

  10. Dollars and $ense for Teens

    Dollars & Sense @ Teen Coffeehouse

    Thanks to Theresa Lennon of Ameris Bank for coming to Teen Coffeehouse last Saturday!  She gave the Southeast teens some great information about money, banking, and credit vs. debit.

    Several questions came up, including “what’s the best way to establish credit?” and “what’s the difference between a debit and a credit card?”  Theresa answered all of our questions and even quizzed us with a few of her own!
