New Take Home Kits available!
The Aaron A. and Maria H. Putnam Family Charitable Trust provided the funding so we could create Toddler Time Take-home kits. We are working on 20 preschooler backpacks that will include a sturdy oversize boardbook, a music cd, a musical instrument, dancing scarfs and a lesson plan on how to create story time for your toddler at home.
New Take Home Kits available!
Rotary Club of Houlton provided a grant to the Library so our patrons can choose from nine phonics kits for take home learning. Children learn to read using phonemic awareness. Phonics education allows instruction in decoding letters and recognizing sounds, all first steps in learning to read.
Story and Craft Time Program
Starting Wednesday, October 6th, Story and Craft Time will be delivered through Facebook! Every Wednesday at 3:00 pm we will be uploading two videos--in the first, Miss Hayley will read a book to you and in the second she will take you through a craft related to the book. These videos will be prerecorded and will stay up on Facebook for a few months, so you do not have to worry about tuning in on time. The crafts will require materials you can find or substitute with items from home, but we will also have the needed materials bagged up and available for pickup during the week of the craft starting Wednesday morning through Saturday morning. We would love to see your creations in the comments of the craft videos or emailed to email@example.com. We hope you join us!
Tiny Tot Time
All activities at this time are cancelled. We will let you know when we can resume.
The Cary Library will begin an eight week early literacy program, “Tiny Tots Time” every Wednesday from 10 to 10:30. Tiny Tots will start again in the spring April 1st to May 20th. Our goal is to enhance the Storytime experience for young learners, ages 2-to-4, by building essential early language and literacy skills and encouraging social and emotional development. Using high-quality picture books, music, puppets and fingerplay, Our children's Librarian Hayley will help the children enjoy literacy-rich, hands-on experiences at the library.
