Resnick Library Hosts Daycare Children May 4th

The Resnick Library hosted the Daycare Center children on Tuesday, May 4th from 9:30am-11:00am.  Library Staff Anna Reed (shown above) and Angela Rhodes lead the story time, with the featured book “Smokey Bear Story” by John Kulka and the Department of Agriculture.  The story choice comes just in time for camping season, so children know the importance of fire safety.  The children also toured the library, and enjoyed featured Smokey Bear videos from YouTube:

Early Animated Smokey Bear Commercial

Smokey Bear PSA Three Bears 1975

Smokey the Bear Song – 1952 (featuring Eddy Arnold)

Wildfire Prevention PSA – Once Upon a Time (Bambi)

Special thanks to Maria Wesley from the Library Staff, and Karen Wallace and Terry Newman from the Daycare Center.
