A story time for kids is scheduled for Saturday, Jan. 14, at the William R. “Bill” Ellis Memorial Library.
Annette Anderson, program coordinator at the library,will host a story time, crafts and snacks beginning at 10 a.m.
Anderson will read the book “Oona and the Shark,” by Kelly DiPucchio, with illustrations by Raissa Figueroa.
“Oona is one determined little mermaid, but she faces her biggest challenge yet in trying to make friends with Stanley the shark,” she said. “Whatever will she do?”
Anderson said the book is a fun-filled and gorgeously illustrated celebration of friendship, creativity, and perseverance. Oona loves to share her inventions with her friends.
Attendees will paint fireworks to celebrate friendship and the New Year.
