Orange County Public Library (Carrboro) & Storytime
I have mentioned the Orange County Library in Carrboro before, in our storytimes listing. And I mentioned how I have funny memories of this library since I was the person who tried to visit during school hours.
Why is this funny? This library is located inside McDougle Middle School. And it is clearly marked as only open to the public on the weekends and after 3:30 pm on weekdays. Oops. I was hanging out with a bunch of 13 year olds. Luckily they were quite nice. No spitballs at the strange old lady.
In a different capacity, and armed with knowledge, I took C to the storytime here. Storytime is on Saturday at 10:30 am and advertises appropriateness for a huge age range (1 - 6).
We enjoyed this, and liked that it is an indoor activity is offered on the weekend for kids. The story part of storytime was short: 1 book. But it was cute. And the craft was way more intricate and well-thought than other storytimes I have been to. The kids made basketball hoops (it went with the book). Granted, the craft was a little old for C but we still had fun sticking stickers and coloring with crayons. And the older kids who were there were entertained.
The library itself is nice! It isn't the biggest library in the area, but it is of a decent size and the selection is good. The kids area kept C intrigued with its bench seats and wall murals. And it was nice that the storytime was so well attended it kept the library going with a constant din of noise. With a toddler who has a hard time staying quiet for too long, I appreciated the company of noise.
