Beverly Cleary's 100th Birthday

Information about our celebration

Tuesday, April 12 is Oregon Author Beverly Cleary’s 100th Birthday! In honor of this event we will be having a short craft after Parents and Pals Story Time. As you may remember Parents and Pals Story Time starts on Tuesdays at 10:15 am.

Parents and Pals celebrated Oregon Author Beverly Cleary’s 100th Birthday on Tuesday morning. Librarian Sherri will start the celebration by singing some songs, acting out finger plays and reading stories that Mrs. Cleary might have enjoyed if she were a child today. We will participate in DEAR (Drop Everything And READ).  Story Time will be followed by the participants making a simple craft. In Ramona and Her Father central character Ramona makes a crown out of burrs. You can imagine the patience Ramona’s Father used in getting these untangled from her hair! Our craft will not involve burrs. The Library Cricut machine is busy cutting out a wonderful design for the children to color and glue on some bling from the craft closet! Mrs. Cleary would approve of the children’s programing at our Library.

Happy Birthday Beverly Cleary!
