Children can travel the world without leaving home with Lisa Manzione’s Harry and Bella children’s book series now being featured through the Nicholson Public Library. Bella and Harry are Chihuahuas who explore exciting cities around the world.
Each week on the Nicholson Library Facebook page, "Lady Sherri" will read a different book and make a craft.
Make and Take craft packs can be picked up at the library, included in the craft pack is a pretend passport book and a stamp for each country the children virtually visit. Everyone who posts their finished crafts for each country on our Facebook page, will be entered into a prize drawing for Bella and Harry plushies, and a Bella and Harry Let’s Visit Paris! Book. Participants must post your finished craft for each country to be eligible for the prize drawing.
Children are encouraged to remember to check the library Facebook page for Spanish Story Time and Story Time from a Community Leader.
