Frankford library to offer healthy story hours

The Frankford Public Library is offering a healthy-story-hour series this fall. By reading stories that encourage kids to eat healthy and be active, library representatives said they hope to influence kids to eat lots of fruits and vegetables (and try some new ones). Each hour will include stories, as well as an activity showing ways to stay healthy and fit.

“Eat it Up @ Your Library” will begin Wed., Oct. 1, at 5 p.m., when Cascading Carlos will entertain kids with his juggling skills and then show them how to juggle. There will be lots of time for practice and discussion of the importance of eating lots of fruits and vegetables and staying physically active. Kids attending will receive some freebies, including a scarf or juggling balls.

The other story times will be held on Tuesdays at 11 a.m. during Preschool Story Time and on Saturday, Oct. 25, at 11 a.m. during Spanish Story Hour.
