Reading Programs

 Mommy & Me

newborn to two years of age

Our baby program, “Mommy/Me” (or daddy/grandparent)  has resumed! If you’re interested in bringing your baby for the Mommy & Me program, please call us at 765-536-2335. This program is held on Monday mornings at 10:30 am.

We are doing this program on a scheduled basis. If you would like to schedule this program for your baby, call the library and talk to Jill. 765-536-2335

Socialization is just one of the benefits of our infant class, but we also focus on early literacy skills. From the time they are infants, children learn language and other important skills that will help them learn to read. We try to develop these skills by incorporating reading, signing and play into our class.

“2017”

Adult Programming

“Young Adult Program”

7th to 12th grade

This class is offered on the first Monday of each month from 5:00 – 7:00 PM. The program will be different each month. You will do some sort of volunteering at each program, so you will be able to list “volunteering at your local library”, as a community service on your work and college applications.
Some things we will do: collect food for the Hope Center, make crafts for someone or for use at the library, and this fall we will make wreaths and center pieces. Come have fun with your friends and earn community volunteer hours!
No program in July 2017 or September 2017
