Things are getting a little “batty” at Bayne Library this week. Stop by and pick up some do it yourself storytime materials. We’ve got a Halloween song and rhyme sheet, a coloring page, an activity page to promote letter recognition and a Halloween word search page. There’s a make and take bat just for fun! Don’t forget to pick up a great Halloween book too!

During November we’ll post photos, thoughts, tweaks, and reviews of recipes in this cookbook. Both Andrew Bayne Memorial Library and Avalon Library will have copies of the cookbook available, and they will also happily order more for you! We’ll send updates when copies arrive.
