Whether they were riding in strollers, amped up with excitement or just ambling along — those gathered at New River Library, 34043 State Road 54, were asked to turn on their imaginations and to listen to some stories about sharks.
Bubbles bobbed about them, in the library staff’s attempt to create the sense of an underwater adventure.
And, library staffers gave lively readings of stories featuring sharks as the main character.
Unlike the common stereotype, these sharks weren’t frightening. They were fun.
The people who came to Story Time seemed to be having fun, too.
Library staff has been looking forward to having in-person events, after a long hiatus, due to a massive makeover of the branch library, as well as shifting to virtual programming because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
In keeping with safety protocols, registration was taken for these programs, too, to avoid crowding.
