The Boardman library hosted it’s weekly family story time on Aug. 7. Children’s librarian Karen Saunders organized the event which was kangaroo themed.

Thirteen school-age children and their families attended the event.

“We want to make sure we have a lot of rooming for hopping for today,” Saunders said.

During the event, Saunders kicked off by reading a number of books to the children gathered.

Children also sung songs and danced with Saunders during the event.

“It’s a fun way to get everyone active and help with socializing,” Saunders said.

At the end of the event children worked on a kangaroo craft.

Saunders showed children and their family members how to use paper plates to make a kangaroo and their baby joey.

Children used library supplies to cut out kangaroo shapes and color them in to create the craft.

Family story time is hosted almost every Wednesday at 10 a.m. at the library.
