Piggy Banks for Story Time

@ Minneola Schoolhouse Library
Diane Merchant

The New Year begins a three month program which will focus on helping children understand the value of coins and the value of saving.  Each child attending story time will be given a piggy bank of their own. At each story time in January, February and March the children will have chances to earn “coins” to put in their banks.

On April 8, during Money Smart Week, at story time, we will have the Minneola Market in the library garden, and the Money Smart Kids will have a chance to purchase items using their “coins.”

All children are welcome to attend story time each Tuesday at 2:00 p.m. For further information, contact the library at 352-432-3967.
