Attention all storytime fans! While our regular storytime sessions are not available in March, our storytime kits are! Even better, you can have a storytime at home. Storytime kits have a picture book, songs on cd, a puppet or stuffed animal, and fingerplays and rhymes that all center around the story. You can design your own storytime just the way you want with friends and family at home. Have fun, and tell us all about it when our library storytimes return in April.

"A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees."
Through sweet, simple prose and vivid illustrations, this book encourages positive behavior as children see how very easy and rewarding it is to express kindness, appreciation, and love on a daily basis.
While planting seeds in their garden, two animals learn the value of kindness.
When Ms. Albert teaches a lesson on kindness, Chloe realizes that she and her friends have been wrong in making fun of new student Maya's shabby clothes and refusing to play with her.
