Goat Visits TOTS

The Central Citizens’ Library District TOTS program had a special visitor on Friday, Feb. 24th. The TOTS were able to see, pet, and learn about a baby goat. The goat was brought in by Lori and Rodney Meyer of Hillside Stock Farm in Chebanse. The preschool children really enjoyed feeling the different textures of its coat and ears. They saw how goats have bottom teeth, but none on the top, and they talked about what it eats. After playing with the baby goat, the TOTS listened to the story “The Three Billy Goats Gruff” as well as several stories written and illustrated by the Central High School Creative Writing class. The craft project for the day was a goat puppet. The CCLD TOTS program is held every Friday at 10:00AM with a repeat of the program on Tuesday evenings at 6:30 PM. Any preschool aged child is welcome to attend. The CCLD is located at 1134 N. 3100 E. Rd., Clifton. For more details contact the library at 815-694-2800.
