Blanchard Public Library
The Blanchard Public Library hosts a special Little Read Story Time at 4 p.m. Thursday, April 18, at the library, 205 NE 10th St.
Children will hear the book “Fancy Nancy, Splendid Speller,” by Jane O’Connor, and take part in several activities associated with the book. Snacks also will be provided for participants.
The program is geared to children in preschool through third grade.
The Little Read is a child-focused spinoff of The Big Read, an initiative of the National Endowment for the Arts that the library and the Pioneer Library System have participated in since 2007. Activities are planned throughout the library system during April.
Registration is requested to attend the story time.
