One of the goals of QPL is expose the children in our area to the library, books, reading and storytelling. We established a Saturday afternoon program that occurs on the first Saturday of each month to accomplish that goal. Children ages 4-8 are invited to come and hear stories, and then they participate in some sort of activity related to the story. A few of our activities have involved making crown-shaped bookmarks, valentines, and spinning toys.
The children (and adults) attending the 1st Saturday Kids Fun program in March had a great time! Our storyteller, Mario Archuleta, and our crafts angel, Tammy Arvila, helped us make magic name tags. Then Mario told us a great story. The boy in the story, Gibo, receives a very special birthday gift of a spinning button. Mario showed us how to make the toy and a specially folded envelope to keep it in. Even Katie, age 3, was able to make her toy spin! How wonderful to have these talented folks in our community share their time and talents with our children.
This program is made possible by volunteers. Feel free to volunteer to read and/or tell stories here. Just give us a call at 586-2023.
