Children's Storytime Volunteer Meeting

(Moulton, AL), (July 17, 2015) – The Lawrence County Public Library will have a Children’s Storytime planning session on Thursday, July 30th at 1:30 p.m for the 2015-2016 school year.  Any individuals who are interested in volunteering for Storytime are invited to attend.

Library Storytimes play an important role in early childhood literacy.  According to the Program for Early Parent Support, “children benefit from hearing another adult read to them, from watching other children get engaged in a story, and from being exposed to a wide variety of authors and writing styles. Your child will also learn some essential school readiness skills, like how to sit still for an extended period of time, how to pay attention to an adult other than his parents, how to take turns, and how to be (reasonably) quiet in a public place.”  

The Children's Storytime occurs weekly during the school year.  The program is held on Thursdays from 10 a.m.-11 a.m., and is open to children from infancy to five years-old.  Children must be accompanied by an adult.
