Kimball was at the library for the Weekly Storytime with Lydia, along with her mom, Nancy Kimball, and siblings Will, 9, and Macie, 16 months. The weekly service is free to the public and is held at 11 a.m. every Wednesday in the children’s section, around the decorative castle.
The family was at the library to pick up some books and just happened to be there in time for the weekly reading, Nancy Kimball said.
“That was a cute book,” she said after Peters finished “Leonard the Terrible Monster,” by Mo Willems.
She said her children seemed to enjoy the book reading, even her son, who is a little older than the target audience for the program.
“My oldest doesn’t want to read very much,” she said. “Anna likes books very much.”
Sharon Cleveland, Cedartown branch manager for the Sara Hightower Regional Library System, said participation in the weekly program has been lower than they would like. She said she would like to see parents bring more children in for the service, which ends April 28.
In addition to the storytime, the library will host the Rome library’s puppet show at 10 a.m. April 14. That event coincides with National Library Week. The puppet show also will visit the Rockmart library, with a show scheduled for 11 a.m.
