Our Kids’ Story Time has gone on hiatus for a little while. We plan on bringing it back soon, so let us know if there is a day and time that work especially well for your schedule.



Invisible Lizard cover

On Thursday, August 17th at 2:00pm, beloved local author Kurt Cyrus will be at the Farmer’s Market to share his latest book, Invisible Lizard, which is the story of Napoleon the chameleon. Despite being the spiffiest chameleon in the jungle, he has no friends. And why is that? Because no one can see him! As everyone knows, chameleons blend in with their surroundings. Napoleon is practically invisible. So he tries every trick he can think of, from waving his arms to weaving a welcome mat to making funny faces, to get the other jungle animals to see him. But it’s his final trick that really gets him noticed.




On Sunday, August 20th at 2:00pm at the Gallery at Ten Oaks, author Stephanie Shaw will present her latest picture book, Piece by Piece. It tells the story of a woman who fashions a wondrous dress, with a bodice that sparkles of starlight and lace like the foam of an ocean wave, only to be told that the dress is not saleable. Rather than being discouraged, she starts again in this magical tale of persistence and following your dreams.





On Monday, August 21st, we will experience a solar eclipse. We have all your pre-eclipse goodies, from books to viewing glasses and even stickers and hats. Come by and stock up before the rush. Plus, on Saturday, August 19th at 11:00am, we will have a special Story and Activity Time for budding astronomers where we’ll learn more about what an eclipse is and get everyone excited for Monday.
