Library News for May 17

Children need to see and hear hundreds of books before they are ready to learn how to read, according to The Childrens Reading Foundation. Parents are children’s first teachers and to help support early literacy at home, we’ve stocked a new section in the library for Kindergarten Readiness. Ask for a brochure listing the 100 books recommended for pre-kindergarten children and begin a reading log today.

Preschool children can attend Story Hour on Tuesdays at 10:00 am and Saturdays at 1:00 pm. Toddler Time is Thursdays at 10:00 am. We hope visiting the library with your child is a part of your weekly routine.

Students ages 10 – 18 will want to join our Summer Science Club. On Thursday, May 18 at 5:00 pm we’ll kick off the program and create glow-in-the-dark magic mud. Space is limited so call 237-3861 or stop by the circulation desk and register to attend.
