Join Miss Lexie each Thursday for a super fun Preschool Storytime.  Using a different theme each week, Miss Lexie will read 3-4 books and lead songs, fingerplays, and rhymes to prepare children for reading.  The storytime will finish up with a craft, designed to strengthen fine motor skills. This storytime is appropriate for children ages 3-5.

This week our storytime theme is: Firemen!  We welcome a couple of Huntsville Firefighters to Storytime.  They will tell us a little bit about what Fire Fighters do, show us some of their equipement, and then give us a tour of the Fire Truck! 

Super Duper Science Club Presents: DNA Magic with Hudson Alpha

What is DNA?  How do you find it?  What kind of materials is it in?  And you can extract it from Strawberries???  Yes!  Find out how with the Educational Outreach team from Hudson Alpha Institute of Biotechnology.

This event is appropriate for children in grades 3rd- 5th. 

The Super Duper Science Club events are designed to increase children's natural interest in science and the world around them.  Some of the program may contain concepts that are difficult for younger children to understand or sit still for.  We ask for the help of parents and caregivers to follow the suggested age guidelines and to remove younger children who become a distraction during the event.

Afternoon at the Movies: Disney's Cars

Can't wait for Cars 2?  Watch the original on the big screen at the Library!


From the acclaimed creators of TOY STORY, THE INCREDIBLES, and FINDING NEMO comes a high-octane adventure comedy that shows life is about the journey, not the finish line. Hotshot rookie race car Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) is living life in the fast lane until he hits a detour on his way to the most important race of his life. Stranded in Radiator Springs, a forgotten town on the old Route 66, he meets Sally, Mater, Doc Hudson (Paul Newman), and a variety of quirky characters who help him discover that there's more to life than trophies and fame
