READING PROGRAMS FOR KIDS & TEENS
The fundamental keys for the development of lifelong learners are reading aloud and reading for enjoyment. Especially in young children, quantity trumps quality in terms of building reading fluency. For that reason, we offer year round reading programs and challenges for all ages.
TEEN BEACH BOOK CLUB
This August, Hannah Fyke will be hosting a Teen Beach Book Club for ages 12-15. From August 1st through the 22nd there will be weekly meetings from 5-6:30 pm. Teens will meet in the park outside the library to discuss the book The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han. Join even if you have already read the book or watched the TV series!
KIDS STORY TIME
Our Story Times employ techniques aimed at developing Early Literacy skills and enabling caregivers to reinforce the same skills at home. We are avid proponents of reading aloud to children, long past the time they have learned to read themselves. This improves listening skills, attention span, fluency, increases vocabulary and develops a love for story. These are all skills necessary for a successful school transition.
We have a sizable collection of ebooks, downloadable audio books, books on CD and PlayAway Views which offer portable audiovisual stories. We also have two Kindle Fires available for teens to use in the library. We have AWE Early Learning Stations which offer educational programming for ages 2 - 12 and PC computers for use by students age 12-18
