Children’s holiday books and Legos are here

Legos!Tomorrow is the first day of Winter Break for Wilsonville kids, so we’ll be putting out a tub full of Legos in the Children’s Room.  They’ll be out on one of the big wooden tables in the JER / New Non-Fiction area during Winter Break when the Children’s Desk is staffed.

Also, we put many of our Christmas, Hannukah, and Kwanza books on display in the Children’s room.  They are on the shelf that usually has easy non-fiction books (opposite side of non-fiction DVD’s, facing the play area).

Can’t find what you’re looking for? Ask at the Children’s Reference Desk, or call 503-570-1599, or email engelfried@wilsonvillelibrary.org.

Santa’s visit to Storytime in pictures

12-8-2011 santa storytimeDid you miss our special Storytimes featuring that man in the red suit, Santa Claus? Or maybe you came, but want to relive some of the fun?

Then take a look at our pictures from Storytime during the week of December 6-8. We sang the Reindeer Pokey (to the tune of the “Hokey Pokey”) and shook our antlers, we experienced “The Nutcracker” with puppets and a Russian storyteller (in just five minutes!), and then we sang “Must Be Santa” – and Santa arrived!
