“Happy Birthday to Me” was the song of the morning at Marie’s Library Storytime on Thursday, July 14, at the McHugh building.  Twenty-six children and 13 adults celebrated everyone’s birthday by listening to birthday stories, singing “Happy Birthday” to each child, and learning silly new birthday songs. Children stood up with all the children sharing the same age, starting with one and going up to six, and pretending to blow out their own candles. Then everyone made their own birthday crown and enjoyed birthday cupcakes.  Marie received a special surprise when Lisa, Boone and the children from the Books with Boone class came down to sing “Happy Birthday” to her, too.
