Thanks to a grant from the Yerdon Foundation,
the Fort Plain Free Library will be teaming up with Harry Hoag
Elementary to present a series of free story hours. Free Story Hour
is open to all kindergarten and first grade students, parents or
caregivers are more than welcome to join in. Each story hour will be
held on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at Harry Hoag Library, and at
the Fort Plain Llibrary on the 4th or last Tuesday of the month.
Program runs from November through the end of May.
This collaboration will help to get more great
books in the hands of families, while encouraging every-day home
reading time. The Story Hours will be facilitated by local artist
Mrs. Joanne Resch. She will work with Harry Hoag Library Media
Specialist Mrs. Terri Brown, to present unique themes and projects
for each monthly session.
The program features a 'whole book approach'
of sharing storybooks with children known as "READ":
R: Read a story with the children
E: Exercise relating to the story
A: Art activity is enjoyed by all
D: Discover more books to enjoy at home.
