A New Year's Party!

Children welcomed in the New Year with a party at the Barney Library today. Miss Vida led us in a noisy parade, we listened to a New Year's story,  made crafts, and even watched a movie!  We can't wait for 2012 and more great programs at the Barney Library!

Trim The Tree Brings The Magic of Christmas

The Annual Barney Trim The Tree brought over 60 participants together to share Christmas songs played by Linda Tomasso and her son, Edward, as children created Santa hats, snowmen spoons, colored snowflakes, sparkling candles, decorated lace doilies and pom pom tree ornaments to take home.  Santa made a surprise visit to hear the wishes of youngsters and the Christmas elves provided Christmas Tree cakes to celebrate the season.

Songs of the Season

It was an old-fashioned sing-along of holiday tunes this season, thanks to Anita Siarkowski, The Accordion Chameleon, who led the chorus.  Christmas Special Ice Cream from Shady Glen in Manchester topped off the program and brought rave reviews!

Tot Time Marches On!

Parents, caregivers and children come together at The Barney Library on Tuesday mornings at 9:30 a.m. for stories, music, finger plays and playtime and socialization.  It's a fun time with lots of activity as these photographs illustrate.
