Wisconsin's Water Library: Story Hour

Wisconsin's Water Library has been successful in our outreach programming to youth around the area. In addition to our Frog story hour, with real live frogs (pictured right), the library has also been working on other themes including early literacy with ABC's and counting, fish and waterfowl. During the story-times we read a few books to the children, sing a song or play Simon Says, and usually finish up with the ever popular craft.

Previously programming has included venues such as Monona, Baraboo, Black Earth, Mount Horeb, Cambridge, and Cross Plains Public Libraries, as well as work with the Ho-Chunk Nation and Head Start Program. The Water Library is excited to announce that in the upcoming months, a new series of story hours will be taking place. We look forward to seeing some familiar faces as well as getting to meet a few new ones. The public is welcome to attend any of the public library programs.

Upcoming Events:

January 27 - Ho-Chunk Nation Head Start
April 4 - Allied Drive Learning Center
More story hours will likely be added in the coming months. Watch our Facebook page for updates. To see more photos from past story hours, visit our Flickr page. For ideas and outlines of some of our past story-times, visit our website.
