Engaging children in simple but powerful activities every day help them develop early literacy skills that help them get ready to read. These activities or practices are talking, singing, reading, writing and playing. All of our story times are planned using these skills that educate your children in fun, interactive and effective ways!
Strolling magicians, musicians, medieval crafts and games, food and fun will fill the grounds of the Ostrander Branch on Tuesday evening July 1 beginning at 6:30.
