For a story or two!

Thursday, February 16 from 3:15–5:00PM
Wanting to have a younger sibling, a lonely boy writes a letter to the storks begging for them to deliver a baby to his workaholic parents, despite the fact that the birds got out of the baby business a long time ago and now they work delivering courier packages for an Internet merchant. But the discovery of an infant in the warehouse inventory forces the delivery service’s recently promoted stork owner to deliver one last bundle of joy.
Library staff will pick K-3rd grade kids up at school and escort them to the library for movie day. Due to the school dismissal time for 4th & 5th graders, transportation arrangements will need to be made for them to attend movie day. Parents, please remember a note needs to be sent to school giving permission for kids to walk over with library staff AND kids need to be registered at the library by 4:00PM Wednesday, February 15. Space is limited. Please contact the library if you have questions or to register for Movie Day at 740.924.3561 or email email@example.com.
Licking Park District for K-5th Graders
Water, Water Everywhere!
Thursday, February 23 from 3:15-4:30PM
An animal’s tracks may offer clues that help us to understand its behavior. Solving track mysteries can reveal an animal’s habitat and food preferences. In this activity, students will practice being a biologist by investigating wildlife through tracks, solving track mysteries, and creating a tracking ID book.
The Alexandria Public Library is happy to be working with the Licking Park District to offer children’s programs on the fourth Thursday of the month for kids in K–5th grades. Parents, please remember a note needs to be sent to school giving permission for kids to walk over with library staff AND kids need to be registered by 4:00PM Wednesday, February 22. Space is limited. Due to the Intermediate school dismissal time for 4th and 5th graders, they will have to make their own transportation arrangements.
Please contact the library to register at 740.924.3561 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
