Children ages birth through 7 years are invited to this year’s “Color Me Happy” Fall Story Time sessions at the Huntington and Markle Libraries beginning September 13th. Sessions take place Tuesday and Wednesday mornings at 10am and Tuesday evenings at 6:30pm at the Huntington Library and Thursdays at 10am at the Markle Library from September 13th through November 17th. Themed around colors, the sessions will encourage everyone to wear a particular color each week!
Story Time emphasizes the six pre-reading literacy skills — letter knowledge, phonological awareness, print awareness, print motivation, vocabulary, and narrative skills — from the Every Child Ready to Read @ Your Library program.
Discovery Crew will begin the same week, inviting children in grades 1-3 to be Tree House Travelers! Come to the Huntington Library Wednesdays at 4:15pm from September 14th through November 2nd to explore history and geography with a variety of activities and games, all based around the popular Magic Tree House books by Mary Pope Osborne.
Registration for both programs is open now — to sign up your child, call the Youth Services Department at 260-356-2900.
