The Forsyth County Public Library has planned some special programs for elementary school-age children staying at home next week.

“During spring break, with kids out of school, we have a different audience coming in,” said Vanessa Cowie, youth services coordinator.

“Instead of our usual preschool storytime fare, we’re changing things up with a variety of programs for a variety of ages."

At all three branches, Forsyth County Sheriff's Deputy Pete Sabella will present a "Stranger Danger" program and Forsyth County firefighter Andrea Noble will read stories about fire prevention.

Each branch will also have its own special programs.

The Cumming Library will hold an afternoon storytime on Monday with six puppet show skits based on popular children's books.

The Sharon Forks Library will offer a performance about recycling on Monday. Each audience member can bring something to recycle.

Sharon Forks will also feature a Spanish bilingual storytime program based on an early-childhood language immersion program.

Hampton Park Library will screen two movies through its family cinema series.

Titles can't be published due to the library's license agreement, but hints can.

The first film tells the story of a town that falls under some tasty weather.

The second features a classic fairy tale about a princess with long hair.
