The January story hour was held on Saturday the seventh at the New England Public Library, with the Dinius family coordinating the mornings events.

Emily and Grace assisted the children make a picture of a snowman. They used coffee filters for the body of the snowman, orange triangles for the carrot nose, black paper hats, pipe cleaners for arms and hands, and buttons down the front all glued onto a piece of construction paper.

Grace Dinius read the books “The Penguin who wanted to be Different,” “The Special Christmas Tree” and “Santa is coming to North Dakota” to the group.

Every child then made a melted snowman trail mix by mixing  pretzels, mini marshmallows, and mini chocolate chips together in baggies to be eaten later. They all received a snowman peep to enjoy before checking out new books to read at home.

The next story hour is scheduled for Feb. 4 at 10 a.m.

With all the snow we have already, this winter the board decided the library will be closed on days that school is closed, as it may be impossible for the librarian to get into town.

New children’s books at the library are “Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Double Down”, “Firegirl,” “Yardwar,” “Soup Day,” “A Chair for Mama,” and some new Curious George and Flat Stanley books.
