Giv­ing thanks as Spring­dale Li­brary pro­gram starts again

Nor'wester (Springdale) - - EDITORIAL -

There was a low turnout dur­ing the Thanks­giv­ing story time at the Spring­dale Pub­lic Li­brary Saturday, but there was plenty to be thank­ful for as the pro­gram is un­der­way for an­other sea­son.

Li­brar­ian Judy Hamil­ton gath­ered the small group to­gether for a story about the first Thanks­giv­ing in­volv­ing the pil­grims and the In­di­ans. The book taught the par­tic­i­pants about that first big turkey feast.

They all then had a chance to share what it is they are thank­ful for. Hamil­ton showed them a cor­nu­copia and they had some fun learn­ing to pro­nounce it.

The young ones were pa­tient and attentive through a story, “Thanks­giv­ing Feast,” be­fore they got the chance to make their own cor­nu­copia craft.

The chil­dren filled their cor­nu­copia with fruits and veg­eta­bles they cut out of gro­cery fly­ers. They added a mag­net so it can be dis­played on their re­frig­er­a­tors.

Later, it was time for the pup­pets Casey and Susie to visit. They were dressed as a pil­grim and an In­dian, and they en­ter­tained with a Thanks­giv­ing song.

After grace was spoken, ev­ery­one sat to­gether and en­joyed blue­berry pie with whipped cream. Up­com­ing at the Spring­dale Pub­lic Li­brary is the Fam­ily Hal­loween story time.
