Storytime – Dream, Wish, Imagine…

Imagine

Nothing like new displays, redesigning book club logos and dreaming up new and exciting storytime themes to give the imagination a workout! In such a busy, fast-paced world, the importance of cultivating a child’s imagination can sometimes be forgotten.

“Logic will get you from A to Z; imagination will get you everywhere.” ― Albert Einstein
