Dusty Roadrunner

for Earth Day Preschool Story Time

DustyWe love our library! Here at the Southside Library, Dusty Roadrunner, the mascot for Keep New Mexico Beautiful, Inc., a non-profit that promotes civic pride and beautification, visited again this year for our Earth Day theme for Preschool Story Time. We sang Earth Day rhymes, like “We’re not litterbugs.” Big story books were read on gardening, picking up trash, and stories about honoring our earth. These are big subjects for 2-5 year olds. But we make it fun, especially when we have guests like Dusty to support our teaching about love of books and reading and learning about everything under the stars. The children planted their own sweet pea seeds to take home for planting, and get their picture taken with Dusty. The mascot loves libraries, feels comfortable in them, as he does everywhere he goes.
