Join us every Saturday for a special camping themed Virtual Storytime lead by Mora Branch Librarian Katherine! Each week we will meet on the Zoom platform to read stories about nature, sing campfire songs, do crafts, and earn nature badges!
This is a six-week program series, and each week we will have a new nature theme. Craft supplies will be provided during your branch’s curbside pick-up hours. Please indicate in the registration if you would like to receive a prepackaged snack for your child. Please register each child individually so we can be sure we have enough supplies.
Recommended for preschool aged children. Registration required. There will be two sessions each Saturday; please only register for one session each week:

Never used Zoom before? It’s easy! All you need is internet access and a computer or smartphone with audio and video capabilities. This is a great way to see friends face-to-face while maintaining social distancing. Don’t have Wi-Fi? You can also call in to the meeting!
If you are interested in attending, please register for the event and Katherine will reach out to you with further instructions.

(Virtual) Science Tellers present — Dragons: Return of the Ice Sorceress!

Registration is open for 3 different times on Tuesday, June 23!
10:30 AM – 11:30 AM (Rush City)
1:00 – 2:00 PM (Pine City)
3:30 – 4:30 PM (Sandstone)
Get ready for the return of Science Tellers, this time with an amazing interactive, virtual appearance!
A long time ago in a faraway world….
Two brave villagers go on a daring journey to release dragons and save the kingdom from the Evil Ice Sorceress! But when things don’t go as planned, they might need to look to themselves (and science!) for the answer. Throughout this fantasy story, online participants will witness experiments using dry ice, fog, bubbles, flying rockets and more. Opportunities are included to make hypotheses, and then see if your guess is right as it’s tested on-camera! Vote for what you think characters should do next, and see what happens! There will even be a bonus science experiment you can do right along with Science Tellers, using common household items.
Recommended for kids of school age, and registration is required on the events calendar. Registrants will receive a zoom link via email prior to the event.
