Preschool Storytimes begin January 8 & 9 2013 and resume for 8 weeks.
Sponsored by Lock Haven Moose Lodge 100.
A New Session of Story Time: Winter session will resume on Wednesday, January 9, and Thursday, January 10 at the following times:
Baby Bookworms (a shorter program for the wiggliest little listeners): Wed.10:30AM
Book Bugs: Wednesday 11:30AM
Busy Bugs (program will be geared to the predominant age attending): Thurs. 10:30AM
Night Bugs (pre-school and primary grades): Thurs. 6:45PM
The winter session will run for eight consecutive weeks. The library does not usually close for bad weather or when Keystone Central School District closes, however, I urge you to use your best judgment when deciding whether to come out for story time. If I am here and more than one or two children show up, I will be happy to do the program.
Our theme will be Favorites. We’ll be reading about favorite boys and girls, favorite pups, and some favorite authors and illustrators too. Come on out and see if I have picked one of your favorites!
The Lock Haven Moose Lodge #100 is sponsoring our story times in 2013 through a generous donation. A big thank you goes out to them.
A New Face: Meet Tiffany Jarrett. Tiffany is a senior in high school at Central Mountain High School and is participating in the school’s Co-op program, which places high school students in the work place to be mentored and gain valuable skills. Tiffany takes Child Care classes at the high school and participates in the PlayDays Pre-School there. She will be working primarily with Ms. Nancy and Ms. Rosemary in the Youth Wing. Please welcome her. She is here to learn and to help all of us!
New Lego Club Session: Lego Club will resume for a consecutive ten week session beginning on Tuesday, January 22 at 4PM-5:30PM. The final Tuesday will be March 26th. Parent Tara Bakaj and Ross employee Tiffany Jarrett will lead the group. All ages are welcome. Some Legos will be provided. Participants may bring their own as well, but Ross Library cannot be responsible for lost pieces. The group will meet on the second floor in the new Youth Community space. Parents of children under age 9 should plan to stay in the library or designate another adult as caregiver. Parents are also welcome to participant. You are never too old to create with Legos!
