Registration for fall Story Time sessions begins at Huntington City-Township Public Library. Various weekly Story Times will be offered to children ages birth – 7 years on Tuesdays & Wednesdays at the Main Library in Huntington beginning on September 9 & 10. Story Time introduces the child to children’s literature and provides a group experience for the young child, while encouraging listening skills and the development of lifelong reading interests. The library incorporates the Every Child Ready to Read @ Your Library pre-reading skills into their story time programs. These six skills that children can start learning from birth are narrative skills, phonological awareness, letter knowledge, print awareness, vocabulary, and print motivation. Story Time also introduces children to many concepts on the list of Indiana’s pre-K (3 – 5 years) Academic Standards, including word recognition, fluency, vocabulary development, reading comprehension, literacy response and analysis, listening, and speaking. Most of all, Story Time is lots of fun! Programs will include picture books, rhymes, flannelboard stories, fingerplays, songs, and puppets. Weekly Story Time themes are featured, with complementary stories, songs and activities offered each week to highlight that week’s chosen theme. Story Time sessions are offered at no charge, but preregistration is required. Parents may come to the Library or call to sign their children up for the weekly Story Time session of their choice. To register for Story Time, call the Children’s Department at 260-356-2900. The Main Library is located at 255 West Park Drive, Huntington.
