Super Powers Storytime Week!

Super Powers Storytime Week!

It’s Library Card Sign-up Month and we’re celebrating the super power of a library card by celebrating a Super Power Storytime Theme this week! So grab your library card, or get signed up for one today because we have some super great books to suggest and plenty of great activities to power your reading week.

Type in the tag: #iamsuper into the catalog search bar where you’ll find books such as SuperHero ABC by Bob MacLeod, Batman’s Dark Secret by Kelley Puckett, and I Am Wonder Woman by Erin Stein. With your library card number and 4 digit pin you can up any of these books on hold to pick up at your preferred library branch.

During the week we’ll have some online programs you can catch as well, many with our Super Power theme, so be sure to check our library calendar. 

Because playing and singing helps build early literacy skills as well, here are some wonderful super powered theme fingerplays and songs we hope will inspire some playful fun as you celebrate super powers this week!
