“Let’s Do Nothing!” Digital Storytime

Hello kids!

Here’s another great story! I bet many of you are keeping very busy at home with school and other fun things. Let’s see what happens when two kids try to do NOTHING! Thank you to Candlewick Press for permission to read this book to you, and to Chelsey and Blake for being our wonderful readers! If you haven’t met Chelsey yet, she works on Saturday mornings and helps out other times when we need it, too. She is also our library ARTIST who does all our paintings on our windows, and she’s one of Jeanette’s daughters . Blake is her husband, and we are thrilled that he wanted to be a part of this and read to YOU. You kids have a whole lot of people who care about you!

Story Time Read Aloud from Library Staff!

Thanks for checking out our first Spring Valley Public Library read aloud! With permission from Chronicle Books, Chelsey A. and Hannah R. are reading the book “Give Me Back My Book!” by Travis Foster and Ethan Long. Chelsey works at the library on Saturday mornings and helps out when we need it. Hannah is her sister and used to work at the library. She was so excited about this story that she wanted to help out, too! We miss you so much. Enjoy the story! Because of the generosity of publishers in allowing us to read stories online, we will only be leaving the link to the story up for 48 hours and then removing it. Then we will post a new story for you!

Give Me Back My Book!

Library Will Remain Closed

The Spring Valley Public Library will remain closed through April 10th at least. We do not have a definitive date as to when we will be opening. We are following Governor Walz’s Emergency Executive Order “Directing Minnesotans to Stay at Home.” We encourage you to look at our online resources for materials if you are able and watch here for updates. If you have Facebook we will be posting on our page there, too. We are all in this together. The library will not be staffed during these two weeks and voicemail will only be checked periodically. If you need to get in touch please email me at sv_dir@selco.info or leave a message on FB messenger. Due dates will continue to be pushed back and no fines will be accrued or charged during this time, so don’t worry about your account. Thank you for understanding our need to keep our staff and patrons safe.
