“After School is Cool” is designed for students in kindergarten through fifth grade.

Story Time

Preschool Story Time sessions are set for Wednesday at 10:15 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Youngsters can listen to “Cooking with Henry and Ellie Belly” by Caroline Park Hurst and other stories about children cooking. Attendees will share their favorite recipes, prepare and make an apron to protect their clothing during future cooking projects. A cookbook with all the children’s favorite recipes will be available at the Thanksgiving Feast.

“Miss Heidi” will present the session Thursday, and attendees will celebrate Thanksgiving at 7 p.m. Children who attend the 7 p.m. program will do two Story Times in one on Thursday. Children are asked to provide their recipes and a snack to share.

The morning and afternoon Story Time groups will celebrate Thanksgiving on Nov. 27.
