Storytime is on TODAY Wednesday 2 June
Preschool Storytime is on today at 10.30am. Everyone is welcome to join us for songs and stories.
1,000 Books Before School Presentation day is coming up
Participants have you returned your completed reading logs yet? Logs need to be returned by 4.30pm Thursday 10 June to ensure certificates are ready for Saturday 12 June at 10am.
For those who haven’t signed their child up. The program encourages early literacy and a love of reading for your child. Parents can join children at any stage during the year. The program is for children aged from birth to starting kindergarten. The target of 1,000 books may seem huge but can easily be achieved in less than three years with little effort.
If the child attends Storytime at the Library or the Grenfell Pre-School & Long Day Care Centre, the books read will count towards the 1,000 total. Stories from The Story Box Library, BorrowBox and indyreads™ count as well. An investment of one book a day, three to four minutes is all that is necessary to open a child’s mind to a lifelong love of books and learning. Certificate presentations are held quarterly.
So, sign up your child to the program and a library membership today.
