Special Guests bring sizzle to August storytimes at Teton County Library

Although the library’s 2007 free Summer Reading Program “Get a Clue @Your Library” winds up on August 3, free weekly Storytime presentations will continue to sizzle throughout the month of August. Children’s librarians will keep reading magic rolling during August with a puppet show and guest presentations about everything from mystery puppets to animal scat to birds of prey. Studies show that reading even a few books during the summer can help kids maintain the literacy skills they learn in school. The library invites kids ages 3 to 8 to join in the fun every Thursday from 10:30 to 11 a.m. in the Ordway Auditorium. Featured themes are:
