Bring the kids to listen to a story, sing together, and do a lot of silly dancing. We ask that families bring a blanket to sit on, and stay on that blanket throughout storytime. We will keep six feet between the blankets to maintain physical distancing. Masks are required for adults and children ages 2+. Please stay home if you are not feeling well. Storytime will be canceled in the case of bad weather.
Recorded Storytimes with Miss Pam and Miss Sharon
are added to our YouTube Channel each Thursday.

The struggle for woman suffrage was an important and hard-fought step toward gender equality. Music was one of the significant tools used in the crusade for a woman's right to vote. This virtual concert presents some of the most engaging and interesting songs of the movement, with historical commentary, in commemoration of the centennial of a woman's right to vote in America. Rick Spencer and Dawn Indermuehle carefully craft their vocals and accompaniment to sound as true to a song's era or style as possible.
