All time slots are now full. PLEASE consider registering for one of the waitlist slots. PLEASE DO NOT register for more than one waitlist slot per child -- choose your preferred waitlist time slot and only register for that particular one. If you register for more than one waitlist time slot for your child, you will be depriving another child of their chance to attend the program.Those on the waitlist will move up to a registered slot if a cancellation occurs. Also, those on the waitlist will have their information saved and will be contacted should the Library decide to repeat this program at a later date.
Hey kids ages 3-10! Make plans now to join us at Bossard Library on March 18, 2017 for our special Create-A-Critter workshop and Storytime.
Registration for this event is limited. Registration will open February 19, 2017 and will close on March 4, 2017 or when all slots are filled.
Parents/Guardians will have 6 time slots from which to choose. Each child will have 45 minutes to create their very own critter, listen to a story, sign up for a Library card, and enjoy a snack.
This event is free and is open to children ages 3-10 ONLY; please do not register your child if he or she is not in this age range. Older and younger siblings may attend, but they will not be able to create a critter.
Parents/Guardians, please do not reserve multiple time slots for the same child. Please do not register if you are unsure about being able to attend, as the Library is making the purchase of the critters based on your registration. Please make sure to cancel your reservation as early as possible if you are unable to attend; this will allow someone on the waiting list a chance to attend the program. Please contact Rachael Barker (extension 226), Lynn Pauley (extension 229), or Debbie Saunders (extension 235) if you need to cancel.
All registrations MUST be made online. If the time slot that you want is full, you have the option of choosing another time or being put on the waiting list for your preferred time slot. Those on the waiting list will be notified by e-mail if they are moved onto the attendance list. Being placed on the waiting list does not guarantee that a child will be able to attend the program as this is dependent on cancellations from earlier registrants.
A child must be in attendance at the program in order to stuff his/her critter. A child will not be able to pick up a critter and take it home to stuff. Make sure to bring your camera or cell phone to take pictures at our Critter Selfie Station!
Although every effort will be made to provide each child with the critter of their choice, the Library reserves the right to substitute critters as needed since animal choice is based on availability from our distributor. Please choose your critter carefully as all selections are final.
If your child is on a waiting list and does not get notified to attend the program, we will save your information and you will be contacted should the Library decide to repeat this program at a later date.
Please view the critters listed below and choose your favorite. Once you have chosen your critter, click here to be taken to the registration page.
