Entertainment Plus at Circus Storytime!
Cue loud applause, raucous cheers, and roll out the red carpet for the wonderful stars of our Circus Storytime this week. We hosted circus animals, acrobats, a bearded lady, magicians, clowns, circus dancers, ringmasters, lion tamers, even a circus mouse and many more circus characters at our final week of Storytime sessions featuring the energetic performances of the Orange High School Circus Troupe. They wowed the crowds with their tumbling, acrobatic, juggling and balancing skills. The students also took time out to show the young Storytimers special circus skills. Congratulations everyone!
Celebrating Grandparents at Storytime
We are celebrating National Grandparents Day (Sunday 27 October) with preschoolers inviting their Grandparents along to Storytime this week. Grandparents are custodians of the values, stories and histories of our families and our communities. Share memories and family traditions and more importantly – create new ones by spending the day with your grandparents! There are still some places available for our our Grandparents Storytime on Thursday afternoon at 2pm. Please call the Library on 6393 8132 to book your place.
