MAN, W.Va. — The web-slinging superhero Spiderman recently made a special appearance during story time at the Buffalo Creek Memorial Library.
Librarian Elizabeth Tackett noted the children were delighted with their visit from the superhuman arachnid who found time in his busy schedule usually spent saving the day to play games and work puzzles with preschoolers at the library.
“They had a really great time. They did puzzles and then we went outside with the silly string,” explained Tackett.
The preschool story hour at the Buffalo Creek Memorial Library takes place every Tuesday at 12 p.m.
The program will continue until summer starts and resume at the start of the new school year.
The Buffalo Creek Memorial Library is also set to host their 10th annual Man on the Move Walk Saturday April 23.
The walk has reportedly grown to four times its original size over the years attracting more than 100 people.
Tackett explained Healthy Logan County, Southern West Virginia Community and Technical College, the Logan County Commission and the library partnered to provide free t-shirts to the walk’s participants.
Businesses across the county have also provided more than 50 door prizes.
Registration will begin at 9 a.m. and the walk will begin at 10 a.m.
Preregistration for the walk can be done at the library.
Healthy Logan County is also reportedly planning a “Kids on the Move” walk for May.
For more information you may call the library at 304-583-7887 or message the library’s Facebook page.
