Storytime at the St. Paul Library!

Emilie Hanson (MLIS) conducts storytime at the St. Paul Library
We had the first St. Kate's Libraries storytime on Thursday, May 15, in the lower level of the St. Paul Library. Emilie Hanson (Master of Library and Information Science (MLIS) graduate student and student employee at the Minneapolis library), led an outstanding session with about 14 children from the Early Childhood Center.

We learned about vegetable gardens and seeds, and participated in some songs to learn names. The children sang a song about the northern United States and then spent some time with books that Emilie had selected from the library's children's collection. The children said they had a great time and would like to come back again. Emilie has offered to do another session this summer as she is preparing for a career in youth services librarianship. I am hoping we can accommodate her and the Montessori school.
