Helping your child get ready to read is easier than you think! Use this early literacy calendar and do one fun thing together each day. Read together every day, too!
Join Ms. Lisa for Babies & Books! Our Winter Session begins on January 11, 2017 and will run through February 22. We gather at 10:30 a.m. in the Children’s Program Room. You and your baby will have fun and they gain early literacy skills as we read, sing, dance, and play. This program is geared for children birth – 18 months. Registration is recommended, but not necessary.
Monday and Thursday mornings at 10:30am
Storytime 2017 will start on January 9 and 12.
Singing, dancing, and stories for toddlers and preschoolers. This storytime includes early literacy activities and practices based on the read, talk, sing, play, and write model.
Open Play is held every Thursday from 5:00-7:00pm and Friday from 2:00-4:00pm.
Stay and play in the children’s programming room. Like a play date without the clean up!
We will provide toys and activities for young kids to explore and play with.
The Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library provides a free, hard-cover, age- appropriate book per month to children from birth to age 5. The program is free to all kids birth – age 5 who live in Charlevoix or Emmet Counties or who participate in a pre-school program but live in an adjacent county. The books are mailed each month directly to the child at his or her home. There is no income eligibility. The program is free to all children regardless of ability to pay.
