Doughnuts and stories bring dads to library
In anticipation of Father’s Day, Parkland Community Library, South Whitehall, offered a dads and doughnuts program June 15, with story time for youngsters and the doughy delicacies for all.
All the children were looking forward to taking their fathers to the library to hear stories about doughnuts and then to actually eat doughnuts.
Librarian Jaclyn Hoimes first read three books about doughnuts, “Please Mr. Panda,” by Steve Antony; “The Hole Story of the Doughnut,” by Pat Miller; and then “If You Give a Dog a Donut,” by Laura Numeroff.
Between the second and third story, there was a short exercise session, and then Hoimes brought out the baked treats. Tables were set up and everyone received a plate and doughnut. Then, whoever wanted to ice their doughnut received a small cup with either vanilla or chocolate icing.
And, to top it off, multicolored sprinkles were passed around.
The best part for all, however, was eating the doughnuts.
