Friendly Reminder to Parents

I wanted to remind everyone that next week (July 18th - July 22nd) we will not have our regularly scheduled storytimes/babytimes.  All programing will resume the following week. 

Throughout the year, we provide seven weekly storytimes/babytimes for the community. Next week, we are taking a break from our regular schedule to provide a *puppetry camp for school aged children.  Next week, stop by the library to say hi and checkout more books. As always, Ms Dawn and I, look forward to hearing about your success in the Summer Reading program! Keep reading and exploring your world. 

 * Please be aware that the puppetry camp required registration and all openings are full.

Free Family Fun!

Early math skills in storytime? You bet! I also include projects that encourage children to be active participants in their learning. Cognitive play, encourages the development of language and subsequent early literacy skills.

 It is my goal to create projects that you can easily duplicate at home; thus, extending your child's learning experiences. I hope to see you and your children soon. If you cannot make it on Twilight Tales on Monday nights, I hope that you will  stop by the library to say hi.

 

All Aboard! Free Family Fun @ the library.

  

Chuga, Chuga, Choo Choo!

Come visit the library to experience our Christmas winter wonderland! You can create an ornament for the Christmas tree, see the amazing train display, or play I Spy! The Polar Express travels in and around the whimsical Department 56 Snow Village. Four train sets, and a trolley populate this vintage village. The 12’ x 6’ model train display is available to see anytime the library is open.  However, if you would like to see it while it is running you will need to check the train schedule below.

Family Fun @ the Library

The connection between early literacy and brain development has long been established.   According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, ... early brain and child development has revealed that modifiable factors in a child's early experience can greatly affect that child's learning trajectory.

 

Our weekly family time program has been developed to foster early learning and a love for reading. Each week, I share some of my favorite picture books, and have several family activities which will help support  school readiness.

Spooktacular Crafts

Checkout the spooktacular witches broom that the children made yesterday. Many of the families who attended the Halloween party had requested the directions for the craft.  I have attached a pdf file of the instructions that  Ms. Dawn created; this project was adapted from a blog written by momdot.com.

Next Monday night, children and their families are welcome to join Twilight Tales at 7 pm. We will be creating another fun project, and this program does not require registration.
