Join us for storytime with Ladybug Girl! She and her faithful hound, Bingo, make every day into an adventure!

In the newest book in the series, Ladybug Girl and the Best Ever Playdate, Lulu is excited about her playdate with Finny and especially excited about Finny's Rolly-Roo. In fact, Lulu loves the toy so much that she... kind of forgets to play with Finny. So when the girls accidentally break the Rolly-Roo, will Lulu realize her mistake? In this compassionate and charming story about the value of a great friend, Lulu and Finny repair the broken toy, and soon forget all about it, blasting off on new imaginative adventures together as Ladybug Girl and Grasshopper Girl.

Ladybug Girl will be here on Saturday, April 23rd at 9 AM. Arrive and do some coloring, get your picture taken with Ladybug Girl, then listen to Ladybug Girl and the Best Ever Playdate. The story will be followed by an adorable craft, too! The duration of her stay is not set, so please arrive at the beginning of the event to enjoy all that is being offered.

Independent Bookstore Day falls on the same date as National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day, and we're celebrating with a special story time!

We'll be reading Before You Were Mine by Maribeth Boelts. A little boy imagines what life was like for his new dog before he adopted him from a shelter. Maybe he had a boy who loved him, but the family had to move and couldn't keep him. Maybe he belonged to someone who didn't appreciate how mischievous puppies can be. Maybe he was treated badly, and now he can be shown all the love he's been missing. This boy wonders about all of these things, but maybe they don't matter. Because now, his dog is home.

After the story, we'll be creating a craft to go along with it. The event will take place on Saturday, April 30th at 9:00 AM. Please arrive promptly at the start time to enjoy all that is being offered.
