April at the Creswell Library - Family Newsletter
What’s New in April?
Our first kids' event this Thursday April 6th is Melty Fun Beads.
Lindsey is going to be at a conference starting Wednesday, April 19th through the 21st. That means Storytime and Full STEAM Ahead! will be canceled on Thursday, April 20th. However, there will be Full STEAM Ahead! take-home kits available that week.
We are also doing another Pajamarama Storytime on April 25th at 6:15p,. This storytime is for the whole family and will include picture books, songs, and rhymes!

PreK Storytime - Thursdays at 10:00am in the Creswell Library
Join us for fun books, songs, and rhymes!! This storytime is intended for children in preschool but all kids and their families are welcome to join. We shoot for about 30 minutes of fun but sometimes we go a little long and sometimes just a tad short. Afterwards, we will all do a fun craft. As a reminder, Storytime is cancelled on April 20th.
Babytime – Tuesdays at 10:00am in the Creswell Library
Join us on Tuesdays for songs, fingerplays, lap bounces, scarves, egg shakers, stories, and bubbles! This storytime is 20 minutes long so we can wrap up before the littlest get too squirmy.
Toddler Toy Time – The third Tuesday of the month at 10:45 am in the Creswell Library
Feel free to come to Baby Storytime and then stay for this fun playtime, or just drop in! We will put out some toys during this 45-minute playtime. Suggested ages 1-3, older siblings welcome.
Pajamarama Storytime – April 25th at 6:15pm
Come dressed in your pajamas and bring your stuffies for this storytime. This storytime is a fun event for all ages and will have songs, rhymes, and picture books.
April Reads for May Book Club
Book Club for Kids will meet to chat about "Upside Down MAgic" on 4/4 at 4pm via Zoom. Our next book is "Lexi Magill and the Teleportation Tournament". We will chat about this dynamic adventure on 5/2 at 4pm. Read more about the book from the publisher.
Lexi Magill and the Teleportation Tournament is the perfect adventure for middle grade readers who like scavenger hunts and puzzle-solving.
Twelve-year-old physics whiz Lexi Magill won't let anything stop her from winning Wisconsin's Teleportation Tournament--the annual competition where teams teleport around the world to solve science-based puzzles. She needs the prize money if she wants to re-enroll in the science academy her parents can no longer afford. Added bonus: she'll be able to reconnect with her best friend Haley.
But Lexi's two teammates put a wrench in her plans. When one misreads a clue that lands the team in a castle in Germany, and the other loses her teleportation medallion in Poland, Lexi wonders what she's gotten herself into. Struggling to keep her team under control as the race rages on, Lexi not only has to figure out how to get back on course (literally), but she must decide how far she's willing to go to win, and who her real friends are. With riddles to solve and messages to decode, this interactive read won't disappoint!
Middle School Book Club has started back up again. Please email me at Lindsey@creswell-library.org if you are interested in joining!
