Children's Storytime Every First and Third Thursday

The Young Ambassador's Club, our new children's storytime and activity club, will meet every first and third Thursday from 9:30AM-10:30AM in the Carriage House and in pretty weather on the Grounds. Parents and guardians are encouraged to bring blankets, lawn chairs, and snacks, and all we ask of the children is that they bring their imaginations and excitement. Each child will receive a Young Ambassador badge and will be encouraged to participate in activities that are closely related to the theme of each week's book or books. They will also be able to help us pick out books or themes for future meetings through our Diplomatic Dispatch Box.

This is a donation based program that is free and open to the public. If you would like to support the Young Ambassador's Club, donations can be made at the FLM Offices at 802 San Marcos Street, Austin, TX 78702.

NEXT MEETING: December 15, 2011, 9:30AM

The little ones are sure to have a bear-y good time this week!
