Super Special Story Time:
Beautiful Birds
Thursday August 15
11:30 AM - 12:30 PM
Ages 4-5 years

Join special guest Laura Conner, Environmental Educator at Minnewaska State Park Preserve, and Children’s Librarian Amy Laber, for a story time that’s for the birds, literally! Children will hear stories featuring birds and they’ll listen to bird calls, see bird nests and touch bird feathers. Then, with some help from their parents, each child will make their own binoculars that they can take home. We’ll wrap up our session with a short walk to look and listen for birds outside near the library. This program will take place during the normal summer story time for four and five year olds, accompanied by a parent or guardian.
No registration required.
