Musical Family Storytime (Tuesdays, 6 PM)

Will you be taking a plane, a train, or an automobile to storytime this week? It’s Week 8 (3/13), and we’re all about the vehicles!

  • Welcome song (“Welcome to the Library”):

Welcome to the library, library, library,
Welcome to the library! It’s storytime!
I’m happy to see you,
I’m glad to be with you,
Welcome to the library! It’s storytime!

  • Story: I Stink! (Kate & Jim McMullan)
  • Rhyme: Here Comes the Choo-Choo Train

Here comes the choo-choo train
Puffing down the track
Now it’s going forward
Now it’s going back
Now the bell is ringing
Now the whistle blows
What a lot of noise it makes
Everywhere it goes

The wheels on the bus go round and round
Round and round, round and round
The wheels on the bus go round and round
All through the town

Open, shut them,
Open, shut them.
Give a little clap!

Open, shut them
Open, shut them.
Put them in your lap.

Wave them, wave them,
Wave them, wave them,
High up in the sky!

Wave to me, I’ll wave to you,
Let’s all say “Bye, bye.”

We’ll see you all at storytime on Tuesday at 6:oo PM!
