Preschool students visit the BTC

Today we had a very special group of visitors come to the BTC: Preschoolers from Immanuel Lutheran Early Childhood Center. The children came to EIU for a Kids and Science Day hosted by the biology department. After the students saw live snakes and other reptiles in the Biological Sciences building, they came for an interactive snake-themed story time from our Ballenger Teachers Center librarian, Michele McDaniel.

We read Can I Play Too by Mo Willems; In the Tall, Tall Grass by Denise Fleming; From Head to Toe by Eric Carle; and Snakes by Nic Bishop.

If you are interested in bringing your preschool, daycare, or school group to Booth Library for a special story time event, please contact Michele McDaniel at or call 217-581-6099.
