Very Hungry Caterpillar 40th Anniversary at the Library

Camille was the special guest reader when
Presbyterian Preschool came to the Library
to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of
Eric Carle's "Very Hungry Caterpillar."

There were images on the flannelboard to represent some of the
foods that the Very Hungry Caterpillar ate his way through in order to become a
very large caterpillar.

Then the Caterpillar made a cocoon and stayed inside
for more than two weeks.

Then he when he nibbled his way out of the cocoon
he was a beautiful butterfly.

Thank you Mrs. Camille for coming to the children's
department to share this lovely Pop-Up book
with the children on the week of the 40th anniversary of
Eric Carle's Very Hungry Caterpillar.

Yarn Busters Spring Round of Students

Crochet and Knit students meet for first day of Spring Session.

Some Knitters could only come at night on Thursdays for
classes. This young lady was a quick learners.

This family learns to knit for the first time. This Mom could
knit so it was great that she could help the children
in practice at home. It was fun to teach these children
how to knit.

Mrs. Nancy has had pretty full classes of students learning
to crochet. Nancy is a very good teacher.

Crocheting begins with a loop and just gets loopy, loopier, loopiest.
