Ballet at the library? Yes! Kids at the Prairie Commons Branch experienced a special story time yesterday. Ballet dancers from the DaySpring School read the fairytale Jack and the Beanstalk, then taught the kids dance moves to act out the story they had just heard. You can see more adorable photos from the program here

Beanstalk Ballet is a part of SLCL’s Art @ Your Library series. The program is being held at multiple branches, get the full schedule here
