Nancy, in her posh attire, had a mystery to solve. Who was Nancy’s secret admirer, who had left a glittery love note on her door? She had to find out! Following the trail of fuschia glitter Nancy’s surprise is revealed for a heart felt and perfect Valentine!
Not long afterward, we met another friend in a heartwarming tale with an air of “frosty” mystery. In Steven Kellogg’s The Missing Mitten Mystery, little Annie has discovered the fifth missing mitten of the winter! She is sure that it must be somewhere!

As the snow fell on the upon the Lehigh Valley, story time was filled with warm and “fuzzy” Valentine’s Day literature. As the kids piled the snow high making snowmen and snow forts. Tuesday for Twos featured someone’s very first Valentine’s Day surprise. Mouse’s First Valentine by Lauren thompson is perfectly sweets, and colorful for toddler storytime and circletime.

The Valentine hearts and flowers were blanketed in white as the cold and snowy Valentine’s Day arrived. The flowers may still be asleep beneath the frosty ground but love is still in the air. Join us for more storytime events this week!
