See Firefighters & Fire Trucks at Greenville Library Locations This October

Posted on | 3 Comments

October is National Fire Safety Month and as a part of raising awareness for fire safety, your kids can see fire trucks at Greenville library locations throughout the county. The library will be celebrating with their annual Firefighters & Fire Trucks storytimes. At these select storytimes (replacing the normal storytime event) children can learn about fire safety by not just reading about it but by also meeting firefighters and seeing a real fire truck.

Note: Fire trucks and firefighters will not be available if a fire emergency occurs.

On a related side note, my child informed me today that he thought he might want to be a firefighter someday. In his words, “Firefighters are really cool because they run fast, and I like to run fast. They also wear cool costumes, and I like wearing costumes. . . . Oh wait, they slide down poles. I’m not really into sliding down poles so maybe I don’t want to be a firefighter.”

Back on topic, here are the times for this year’s Firefighters and Fire Trucks storytimes. If you go we would love to hear back about what you think. Remember that special storytimes can be crowded, so plan on arriving a little early if you attend a smaller branch to allow time for parking.

Wish my 2 kindergartens could go. Why don’t they have this after school too?
