Austintown librarian Madline Dunchak hosted a Valentines-themed story time for 4- and 5-year-olds Feb. 13 in the library’s children’s room. The story time began with a cut-and-tell activity about different animals. The story was about a group of farm animals that decided to make a valentine for the new kitten that was coming to the farm that day, but the valentine they had was far too big for the kitten to hold.

Dunchak set up magnetic hearts and provided a rhyming activity to engage children. Next, she passed out shakers and joined the children in dancing and singing along with a Valentine’s day song. Other activities at the story time included a “Five Little Valentines” story and singing a Valentine’s Day version of “Bingo.”

Dunchak also read a book to children at the story time. “If You’ll Be My Valentine” was a book about a little boy who asked his pets, friends, and family to be his valentines for Valentine’s Day.

The story time ended with a special Valentine’s Day craft, in which children decorated a special holder that they could hang on the wall and store all of their valentines in.

Story times are offered several times a week to different age groups. To learn more, visit www.libraryvisit.org.
