It’s Story Time At "Your" Library( Writer’s Note: I am taking the liberty to tell you of this Story Time experience. Yes, it involves my family, but-it is about a library, Story Time at a library, and there is no better place for it to be told than in the Turner Public Library’s monthly mention of Story Time. Ken Roberts)
My two-and-a-half year old great-grandson, Braydon Cantos, was told by his mother one morning that he was going to the library for Story Time. He became so excited he was beside himself, because he loves to go to "his" library and he loves to tell his grandmother about "his" library.
But this morning would be a little different. Braydon’s mother, my grand-daughter Heather, had unknowingly left their home in Aberdeen, MD a little early and arrived at "his" library about five minutes early. The library wasn’t open yet, and Braydon wasn’t happy. In fact, he was mighty unhappy, and Heather thought she would share that unhappiness with her mother, my daughter, Leslie. So Heather called Leslie on the cell phone and all Leslie could hear in the background was Braydon screaming that "his" library wasn’t open.
You have to understand that Braydon is a happy go lucky child, interested in everything, and would much rather laugh and smile than be unhappy. But when it comes to "HIS" library, look out!
The reason for this story is that the Turner Public Library’s next Story Time for pre-school and kindergarten youngsters will be held on Saturday, Aug. 11. There will be stories, crafts, snacks and fun for youngsters with an eye to them becoming life-long readers and friends of "their" library. Story Time will start and 10 a.m. Try not to arrive too early!
