The Library Director, Jean Schlegel, spent the week visiting preschools in the Ness City area. On Tuesday she visited both the morning and afternoon classes of Mrs. Brenda Horchem at the Ness City Public School. On Wednesday morning, Ms. Jean traveled to Bazine and read to Ms. Brenda Ballines’ class at the Western Plains South preschool, and on Thursday she braved the ice and visited the children at Mrs. Lona Ratliff’s Sacred Heart Preschool.
This years’ Kansas Reads to Preschooler book selection was “Dog’s Colorful Day” by Emma Dodd. After reading the story to each class, we retold the tale of dogs colorful day by letting the children add the various colored spots to ‘dog’ using paint dobbers. The children enjoyed counting and repeating the colors and what caused that particular spot on dog. We thank Laurie Dinges for drawing an enlarged version of ‘dog’ for us to tell our story.
Each child received a copy of the book, “Dog’s Colorful Day” compliments of the Ness City Public Library. Below are some of the children. I appologize to the Ness City preschoolers, as I forgot to take my camera when I visited your school.

Time flies! We’ve had two weeks of “Fun Down on the Farm” story time! The first week we read Liz Curtis Higgs’ book “The Pumpkin Patch Parable.” We made pumpkins by covering a roll of TP with orange fabric and adding a twisted brown paper stem, leaves and a curled pipe cleaner.
Week two we read “Barn Cat” by Carol Saul and “Kitten’s First Full Moon” by Kevin Henkes. We discovered that in both books the cat was looking for it’s favorite treat- a nice big bowl of milk! The children made hand print kittens of various colors. Miss Jean gave each child a farm animal sucker to take home.

What a fun packed day we had with the Wichita Children’s Theatre and all of the kids of Ness County! We began our morning at 9 a.m. with the 5th, 6th, 7th & 8th grades watching “The Bully.” At 12:15 p.m. the 3rd grade students participated in “Cavity Crisis in Cowtown” (presented through a grant to WCT from Delta Dental). The kids also received dental hygiene kits. Then at 2 p.m. we hosted pre-school through 6th grades where we enjoyed “Goldilocks and the Three Bears.” Fun plays with educational values and a super audience to top off the day! Thanks everyone for coming! Thanks to the Cub Scout Pack #131 for the generous donation to this event and to the Ness City School for the use of the auditorium.

A great group braved the rainy weather to attend Lap-Sit Story Time today! One mother and her children even walked the two blocks to the library in the rain, and they loved every squishy step of their walk!
After singing our good morning songs, the group was introduced to a new member of our library – her name is “Mother Goose.” Mother Goose, a talking stuffed goose, recites nursery rhymes. After listening to Mother Goose say her nursery rhymes, we remembered that we knew those and more so we had fun reading and repeating our favorites! We also had fun playing with the silk scarves for a while and then it was check-out books time! Thanks for all who came out to our rainy day story time!
Lap-Sit Time is the second and fourth Thursday mornings of each month at 10:30 a.m. If you have a child/children from birth to 3 years old, you are invited to join us! Parents or guardians must stay with their child/children during this time.
These young families weren’t the only ones who braved the rain this morning. We had had over 50 people come to the library by noon today! I always love to curl up with a good book on a rainy day, don’t you!
