Storytime with Miss
Tuesday, Oct. 26, 9:30 a.m. (Tuesdays at 9:30 a.m.)
Storytime is so much more than books! We'll read, sing, play, write, and talk through this fun storytime for babies, toddlers, and preschoolers. 

Storytime will be at the library for October. We'll be indoors on Tuesdays, so we will be limiting the number of families who can attend each session. However, we are adding another time slot on Tuesdays! If this session is full, check out our 10:30 time! 
In order to keep our youngest children safe, we ask everyone who can to please wear a mask during indoor storytimes.  Sponsored by Burlington Public Library.

Zentangle: Relaxing
Wednesday, Oct. 27, 4:15-5:30
Zentangle Method is an easy-to-learn, relaxing and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns called ‘tangles’. You create tangles with combination of dots, lines, simple curves, S-curves and orbs. These patterns are drawn on small pieces of paper “tiles” that you can assemble into mosaics.
This is a meditative art form for the artist and non- artist alike. Please bring a beverage and a snack if you would like. We will be meeting downstairs so participants will need to be able to go up and down the stairs. Paper and pens provided. Sponsored by Burlington Public Library.
