Happy Birthday, Orland Free Library!!

The Orland Free Library is celebrating its 100th birthday! In honor of the centennial, the library has special events all week. Today we had our regular preschool storytime, with a birthday theme.

Our books were Happy Birthday, Moon, by Frank Asch, a few pages of Happy Birthday to You, by Dr. Seuss, and a new book, Children make Terrible Pets, by Peter Brown. (The grownups especially enjoyed the humor of the last book, although the kids liked it too.) We put a birthday cake on the felt board and counted the candles---only 10.

We sang a chorus of Happy Birthday to You, of course. We also sang this little ditty:

Zippity doo dah, zippity ay,
My oh my what a wonderful day!
Orland Library is 100 today,
Zippity doo dah,

The craft was birthday crowns, which the kids colored, stickered, and decorated. They also each got a new library book bag and a free book. All in all, a very happy birthday party!
