From the mouth of a child

One of the best things we heard last week came from the mouth of a three-year-old.  Her mom told us they had a family friend visiting that morning as they were getting ready to come to storytime.

FRIEND: What do you do at storytime?

GIRL: Well, when we get there, it’s already started…

Mom promised they’d get here early next week.

But seriously, we don’t mind when anyone arrives. We welcome everyone in to join us, whether we’re in the middle of a story, waking up our fingers and toes, or doing a hearty rendition of Zoom, Zoom, Zoom.

This fun program for children aged 2 – 5 runs through the end of April, so there is still plenty of time to attend a few sessions. Give us a call at 257-2702 to register your child. We’d love to see you!

STORYTIME = Wednesday mornings, 10am

Storytime in 2019!

We’re thinking about Storytime again, and that means it’s time to sign up. Storytime is a fun weekly program for children aged 2-5 years old, and their parent or caregiver. We read books, sing songs, and do lots of fun early literacy activities!

Storytime runs Wednesday mornings from 10-1:30am. Registration is a must because spaces are limited, so give us a call today if you’d like to sign your little one up. (And don’t worry, we have actual people reading the books.)

257-2702 for more information.

Storytime!

We’re getting ready for another fun season of storytime! While we used to offer two sessions, this fall we’re going back to ONE session at 10am on Wednesdays. It will be busy, but we’re looking forward to seeing everyone together!

Storytime is for children aged 2 – 5. We sing songs, read some great books, do early literacy skills, and much more. It’s always a busy morning, and we love having kids in the library when we’re not open.

As usual, registration is a must, and we’re starting the sign-ups today. Give us a call to get your child’s name on the list for the first session—it will fill up quickly. And please remember, we’ll be signing up on a week to week basis in order to give everyone a chance to attend. If you register but can’t make it, please remember to call us so that we can let someone else on the waiting list attend.

See you in September!

 

Storytime

It’s the last storytime session of summer! Don’t worry…we’re not taking a break for long, but this is the last chance you’ll get to hear Miranda deliver some great stories, and do some songs. We’re wrapping up all of our summer programs this week (except for summer reading), and we’ll be back in the first few weeks of September. Our fall programming schedule will be out soon, so watch for that.

Until then, make sure you’re signed up for today! Give us a call….storytime starts at 10am.

Last Storytime

It’s the last Storytime of the spring season, and while we’re sad to see it come to an end, we’re excited to get planning for summer!

We’ll have our summer calendar ready sometime in the first week of June, so make sure to stop back here that week to see what we have planned. New faces, new programs…it’s all going to be exciting!

Don’t forget, you can see what’s going on at any point by visiting our website at http://carletonplacelibrary.ca

It’s Storytime Again!

It’s that time of year again—-all of our fun fall programs are beginning again, including one of our favourites, Storytime!

Registration begins today for this program aimed at 2-5 year olds. We run two sessions on Wednesday mornings, one at 9:30am, and another at 10:15am. Each one will include books, songs, rhymes, and lots of fun. We focus on the five basics of early literacy—–reading, writing, playing, singing and talking. It’s a great way to give your children some exposure to social settings, learning skills in a group, and to meet some new friends. This is especially important if your child doesn’t attend a daycare, or isn’t involved in activities outside the home (it’s important for parents, too!).

Call us today to sign up for one of the sessions, which begins on Wednesday, September 13th. We’re looking forward to having some of our favourite young friends back at the library, and to meeting new ones!
