At Eastern, we had a wonderful Thanksgiving Feast for storytime.
We read a story and went around the room and gave the children an opportunity to say what they where thankful for. Then, we ate all kinds of good food and played "put the
gobbler on the turkey!"

The Western Branch Library had a special Thanksgiving Storytime on Monday evening. We talked and read about the first Thanksgiving, then read the book " Thanksgiving Is For Giving Thanks," by Margaret Sutherland. After the story, the children enjoyed Thanksgiving themed treats.
On Tuesday, a great group of children from the Idaho Head Start came to visit the library for storytime. We again read " Thanksgiving is for Giving Thanks," and many of the children expressed the things they were thankful for this year .
The Western Library Staff would like to wish everyone

We had our Children's Fall Storytime Party on Monday evening at the Western Branch Library.
Everyone had a blast! Parents were literally wrapped up in the games, as the children were separated into two teams, with a parent leading each team. First, we played "pin the nose on the pumpkin," which everyone played like a pro. Everyone was a winner!
There was another game where the children were given five pumpkin seeds each and had their choice of tossing or spitting (yes spitting) their seeds into a pumpkin. And you might be able to guess which one they preferred. The one with the most seeds into the pumpkin was the winner. Parents loved this game as well as the children.
The children also enjoyed the last game of the day, "eating worms." We put a gummy worm into the bottom of a bowl and covered it with a thin layer of chocolate pudding. The first one to fish out the gummy worm with their teeth and eat it was the winner. The children and parents both left the library with big smiles and lots of laughter. "Thank You" to everyone who took part in putting it all together and ensuring that everything went so smoothly.

We had a nice turnout at Western for the pumpkin painting. There were 17 children and 10 adults in attendance. It was a first time program for a few patrons, and we had a chance to catch up with those we haven't seen for awhile. A great time was had by all. We hope to see many more children attending the upcoming holiday events!
