Fridays, September 11 – December 11, 2020, 11:00 am, Zoom (Civic Center Library)

Come explore the different letters that make up the Alphabet!

Children ages 2-5 are encouraged to join us for a story, a song, and other fun stuff as we “shake up” our usual storytime with a different letter each week! This session we will be starting from the letter ‘A’ through the letter ‘M’.

Registration is required. Register online or call 586.751.0770.

Parents registering will receive an email link to a Zoom meeting on Fridays at 11:00 am. If you can’t make the Zoom meeting, a recorded version will be available on the library’s Facebook page. Families who register can stop by the Civic Center Library to pick up an egg shaker and scarf to use at each class. Craft and letter worksheets will also be available to pick up every week.
