Check it Out: Children’s programs coming to James V. Brown Library
The James V. Brown Library, 19 E. Fourth St., has announced new programs for the spring season.
Virtual Toddler Tales will take place from 10:30 to 11 a.m. Thursdays, starting April 1. This program is filled with music and movement, and book sharing for children and their caregivers ages 12 months to 3 1/2 years old. When children are read to, they develop a larger vocabulary of understood words, because books expose them to the rare or unfamiliar words used less often in everyday speech. This class will be conducted via ZOOM so participants must have access to a computer and Internet access to participate. Registration is required and will begin at 10 a.m. March 18 here: https://calendar.jvbrown.edu/home/event/16971/virtual-toddler-tales

During this workshop, families will sing, dance, read and explore artistic expression. This program is limited to six families and each family will sit at their own table and share materials. All attendees over age 2 are required to wear a mask and social distance. Registration is required and can be made here: https://calendar.jvbrown.edu/home/event/16908/grandparent-storytime

The library supports the PA Forward statewide initiative, which believes that when Pennsylvania residents improve their command of five types of literacy — basic, information, civic and social, health and financial – they can achieve greater success as students, parents, employees, consumers, as citizens. Libraries are community centers of information, technology and learning that will fuel educational and economic opportunity for all of our citizens.
