Cuddlers & Toddlers Storytime @ Destin Library Tickets
Feb 6 @ 9:30 am – May 28 @ 10:00 am

This toddler time experience is an early exposure to storytime. Children will learn the beginnings of sitting and listening to stories and songs. Music and movement are included in this 30-minute class. Language interaction is emphasized through short read-aloud picture books, talking, listening, fingerplays, and singing. Parents are encouraged to sit next to the child and participate. Be encouraged when you see your child interacting with the songs, getting closer to the story, and practicing their sitting skills as they continue to attend. We love to hear reports of pretend play at home, children repeating the songs or rhymes, and we will celebrate with you when you share your story. Join us every Thursday morning at 9:30 am.

Beekeeping with Bundrick Honey Farms
6:30-7:15 p.m.
Learn about beekeeping and taste local honey!

What’s the buzz all about?  Come to the Crestview Public Library at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, February 28 to learn about how the honeybee lives and the respectful ways of keeping honeybees!  Family Library Time lasts about 45 minutes and is designed for adults and children four years old and up.

All over America, city beekeepers are keeping a few honeybee hives in their backyards. Learn what is involved: how, when, where and what you will need to establish a hive. If you’re thinking about starting a bee hive or are just curious about what’s involved with keeping bees, then this is a great introduction for you.

This short presentation is designed for absolute beginners so no prior knowledge is required. There will be no hands-on beekeeping, so protective clothing and bravery will not be necessary.  Taste a variety of local honeys and buy if you like!  Registration is not required for this free event.
