SPRING STORY TIME SCHEDULE
The week of April 21 is the last week of spring story times. Summer story times will resume on Tuesday, June 17. Watch for more information coming soon on the Summer Reading Program "FIZZ, BOOM, READ!"
1,000 BOOKS BEFORE KINDERGARTEN
It's never too early to start reading to your children. With this new early literacy pilot program, we're encouraging you to commit to reading 1,000 books to your child before they go to kindergarten. Children who listen to 500 books will earn a book to keep and those who reach 1,000 will receive a commemorative "1,000 Books" t-shirt.
Stop by the Children's Room for further details and to register. This is an ongoing program so you can sign up anytime.
Thanks to the generosity of The Friends of the Cuyahoga Falls Library, the Children's Room has seven new touch screen game computers, just in time for the start of Summer Reading Program on June 5! Five of them are AWE Early Literacy Stations with games that are appropriate for children ages 3 - 8. And we have two additional new AWE AfterSchool Edge computers with games for children ages 8 - 12. So when the heat index is over 100 this summer and you need a place to stay cool, the Children's Room is the perfect place to read, play and relax!
