Happy Birthday Townsend Schultz!

Once again this year, Townsend Schultz asked his friends to bring books as presents to his birthday party, so that he could donate them to The Barney Library.  This is truly a gift that keeps on giving and we are most grateful to Townsend for his thoughtfulness and generosity.  Happy Birthday, Townsend!

Signs of Spring: Frogs and Fish

Miss Eva was the guest storyteller at The Barney Library, sharing the wonders of frogs and fish for her delighted fans.  After stories and discussing the characteristics of these creatures, children created a frog with a red tongue and neon speckles that could jump.  These artists were treated to "sheep cupcakes", thanks to the generosity of a loving grandmother.  Happy Spring!
