Children in Ms. Snyder’s and Ms. McFall’s Trumansburg Head Start/UPK class have created work that is now on display in the children’s room in honor of the Week of the Young Child.
Art created by students in Mrs. Hale’s and Mr. Burton’s third grade classes is now on display in the children’s room.
“After reviewing color mixing, third graders learned how to create an analogous color harmony. They learned about the placement of analogous colors on the color wheel and the overall calming effect this particular color combination embodies.
Students were then asked to choose one analogous color group to depict a place they like to go or would like to go that is or would be peaceful to them”
-Mrs. Apker, Trumansburg Elementary School Art Teacher
Our April 3 Thursday Story Hour will feature Char McGuire and her amazing Gertrude McFuzz puppet! Join us at 10:30 am to hear the classic Dr. Suess story about a determined little bird with a one-feathered tail.
Ms. McGuire, new to the Trumansburg community, has also generously donated to the library a beautiful hand-made Cat in the Hat and Thing One and Thing Two. Come see our new additions to the children’s room!

On the first Saturday of each month, at 11 am, the library hosts Reader’s Theater, a program for young children, presented by middle-school aged volunteers. The older students enact a children’s book using puppets.
Our April 5 Reader’s Theater will present Millie Fierce, by Jane Manning. Quiet Millie is tired of being ignored, but when she decides to be fierce, she doesn’t exactly get the reaction she’s hoping for. Can Millie find a way to be happy by being mostly good and still a little bit fierce?
The Reader’s Theater Showcase is made possible by a grant from the Children & Youth Fund of the Community Foundation of Tompkins County.
