A new reading program has made its way to the Conrad Library and babies from near and far are cooing and clapping in excitement.
Baby Steps made its debut Sept. 9 with a small but enthusiastic audience.
This program is for young children from birth to age two. Bonnie Berthelson is the teacher and leads the children in playful songs and colorful stories. With ‘Ms. B’ at the helm this learning boat is set to sail.

September isn’t considered summer in Montana – a cool fall chill is in the air most days, the kids are back in school and the summer blooms are dormant for another year.
As I look out my California window at the bright blue sky it’s hard to imagine fall here, I’m too busy being thankful for the sunshine after three months of fog, wind and summer sweater-weather here in San Francisco. We finally get to enjoy our “summer months” of September and October.
So while you may not be expecting another summer road trip feature, I’ve decided one more is in order to celebrate the beginning of our summer. It will be one to tuck away and think about for that big trip next year.
