Mark Your Calendar - Christmas Storytime

Moyer will have a holiday storytime on Saturday, December 17th at 10:30AM. All ages are welcome for this 20-minute storytime. Why not bring your kids or grandkids and make a morning of it? Listen to stories together then checkout books, play in our children’s area, and visit the craft table. This free activity would be a lovely, warm way to spend a December morning.

Weekly Storytime

Elementary storytime runs from 3:45-4:15 on Mondays. Preschool storytime runs from 10:15-10:45 on Thursday mornings. A caretaker must attend preschool storytimes with their kids. 

All are welcome. No sign up is necessary.

What’s Jess Reading

Earlier this week, I finished Africa Is Not a Country: Notes on a Bright Continent by Dipo Faloyin. Africa is often portrayed as one vast safari landscape when, in reality, it is diverse and varied, urban and rural. Faloyin selected a wide array of topics: colonizers, misguided charity efforts, jollof rice, the Black Panther movie, dictators, and more. I found his narrative nonfiction readable and full of things I didn't know. I like a book that not only makes me think, but lingers.
