A book can be enjoyed at any hour.

The first Tuck-In Tuesday allowed kids at the Charles City Library to enjoy evening storytime with new Youth Director Stacey Leerhoff this week.

Leerhoff said about 13 kids showed up for the evening reading session, which supplements the regular Friday morning storytime.

“I didn’t have any idea of what to expect, so this is fabulous,” she said.

The nighttime reading session allows parents who may work during the day to bring their children to the library and participate in the fun activities that go along with storytime.

To kick off Tuck-In Tuesday, Leerhoff came up with an Easter egg hunt.

Leerhoff read a couple of stories from selected books to start the evening out. She then played “Easter Bunny Says,” a holiday take on “Simon Says.” Children also played “Ring Around The Rosie” before the search for the eggs began.

After finding all the eggs that were placed on bookshelves and in other hard-to-find locations, participants at the event painted and colored pictures of eggs.

Storytime is also held on Friday mornings in the library at 10:15 a.m.

“Anybody can come. They can come twice if they wanted, but it will probably be the same program as it is on Fridays,” said Leerhoff.

For the second Tuck-In Tuesday next week, Leerhoff is planning on changing her wardrobe.

“I’m so excited. I’m going to wear pajamas next week,” she said.
