We had to reschedule this month's special guest, The Monarch Midwife, so instead Mr. Andy and Mrs. Marcia will explore the world of Polymers. Perhaps the most famous polymer is silly putty, but homemade goo is quickly catching on and is a lot of fun. Come join us and learn how to make your own goo to experiment with.

September is National Library Card Sign-Up Month! To celebrate, Ms. Anne will be sharing Sesame Street stories and afterwards, to encourage all children to get their own library cards, every child who shows his/her St. Johns County Public Library card can get his/her picture taken with our huge Elmo! If your child doesn't have a library card yet, you can get one at the Circulation Desk anytime before this storytime. There are no age limits for library cards for children - get one now!
