New Family Learning Space Opens This Saturday

literacyThe North Channel Library will be unveiling our new Family Learning Space this Saturday, October 1st at 11 am. Thanks to generous funding by the North Shore Rotary Club, the North Channel Library Family Learning Space will be an area in our children’s department focused on encouraging early literacy through play. The development of language and literacy skills begins at birth and children develop much of their capacity for learning in the first three years of life. During this time, we can stimulate a young child’s brain not only through reading with them, but also by providing opportunities for unstructured and dramatic play with materials such as blocks, puppets and more.


If you have little ones, join us for Baby Time each Thursday morning at 10:30 am. This short interactive program introduces board books to children. Plus we sing songs, dance and play with the parachute! Toward the end of the brief program, we open the toy box for fun time with educational toys, including building blocks. And we end each program with bubbles!! The babies love to watch the bubbles, try to touch them and pop them! Plus we now have  "Early Literacy" ABC puppets as well as "Sight and Sound Tubes" as a gift from the North Shore Rotary Club!
