Another one!

Another one!

The Petoskey District Library periodically offers a program especially for babies and Moms (or other caregivers!) during the year The program runs much like a play group and will introduce rhymes, songs and books to babies and caregivers. Materials and activities will be drawn from the Public Library Association’s “Every Child Ready To Read” and the Association of Library Services to Children’s “Born to Read” programs. Each program will be about twenty – thirty minutes long and will have time for caregivers and babies to read a book together.

Registration is highly recommended but not necessary, though drop-ins will be welcomed provided that the class is not full. There is a limit of 10 care givers and their babies for each session. Call us at the number below, email us at the address below or stop by the Youth Services Desk in Children’s Room to sign up or get your questions answered.

This free program will be implemented by Lisa Scholl (Ms Lisa), one of our Youth Services Librarians who has had training in the Every Child Ready to Read program of The Public Library Association (PLA), and the Born to Read” program from Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC), both divisions of the American Library Association (ALA).

Please call the Children’s Services Department at 758-3112 or stop by the Youth Desk to sign-up or if you have any questions.

Category: EventsParent Child LapSit Story Time

Close

July 30, 2015

Slogan ColorParent/Child LapSits and last about 30-45 minutes.  Parent or Caregivers need to bring the child and sit together to enjoy developmentally appropriate stories, songs (accompanied by banjo and ukulele); finger plays, flannel board presentations and a weekly visit from Puff the Magic Dragon. These programs are targeted at children 18 months to three years old.  Information about parenting, literacy and other family related subjects will be shared periodically during the program.  The books, activities, etc will be loosely tied to the summer program them of "Every Hero has a Story."

Due to the developmental needs of this age group, it is preferred that siblings do not attend if at all possible. However, nobody will be turned away if bringing a sibling is the only way for a child to attend. Bringing toys is also discouraged.  This is a “drop-in” program and no sign-up is required.
