Clifford the Big Red Dog at New Story Time
Youngstown, N.Y. - The Friends of the Youngstown Free Library will host its fall book sale from Thursday evening through Saturday afternoon, Nov. 6 through 8, at the Youngtown Village Center Gym, 240 Lockport St., Youngstown. The book sale will also feature a new story time on Saturday, Nov. 8, at 11 a.m., when "Clifford the Big Red Dog" will visit the children.
Story Time: Saturday, November 8, 11-11:45 a.m.
"Children and families are familiar with 'Clifford the Big Red Dog' from books and the popular PBS show," said Charlotte Viscio Clark, President of the Friends. "When he comes to meet our local kids at story time, he will have some surprises for them, including a coupon to pick out a free children's book at the book sale."
Heidi Lauger from the Town of Porter Story Hour and Secretary of the Friends will read aloud to the kids and provide an easy craft project during the 45-minute story time. Clifford will then meet the children and be available for photos.
