Portage Library to host Storytime, Isle Royale Program for Kids July 25

HOUGHTON -- Portage Lake District Library will host two different programs for children on Wednesday, July 25 -- Storytime for young children by three graduates of Storytime and a continuation of the Isle Royale summer program for kids.

At 11 a.m. Wednesday Ann, Kate, and Elizabeth Desrochers will present "A Dragons Storytime." The Desrochers children will read stories about dragons and lead a craft project that participants will make and take home.

Graduates of Storytime are children who participated in library Storytimes when they were young and now know how to read. They plan every aspect of their Storytime program including the theme, books they will read, and the activity for kids to do. All materials are supplied by the library, and all graduates of Storytime are invited to plan their own event. Contact Chris Alquist at the library for more information.

The Portage Lake District Library continues to host a series of summer programs about Isle Royale just for kids.

From 1 p.m. - 2 p.m. Wednesday Isle Royale National Park rangers Lori Honrath and Katie Donovan will present "Sounds of Isle Royale National Park." Children will listen to the sounds of Isle Royale where animals and humans are communicating in their own special ways. They will learn to identify some of the common "voices" from the forests and lakes of Isle Royale and play "sound" bingo. There will be skulls, skins, and silhouettes of animals whose "voices" they will learn.

All library programs are free and everyone is welcome. For more information, please call the library at 482-4570 or visit www.pldl.org.
