Story Seekers

11:00 AM

Calling all Story Seekers!  The Bradford Area Public Library invites families with children ages birth to 5 to participate in our Story Seekers program, every Monday and Friday at 11:00 am. We offer a variety of literacy activities that include reading, writing, talking, singing, and playing! A new story is offered each week with play experiences that encourage active learning and inspire the imagination. Children have opportunities to create their own stories using art materials, building blocks, dramatic play, and music and movement.

 

During the month of September, Story seekers will talk about fall and going to school. We will also explore changing seasons. We will read: It’s Time for School Stinky Face, Autumn, Jody’s Beans, Applesauce Day, and No, No Gnome.

Imagination to Build On: Architecture Group

4:00 PM

Imagination to Build On will meet every other Wednesday at 4:00 pm. This program, for children in first through sixth grade, will run opposite to the Art Club. We will be learning about the history and different styles of architecture. They will work on activities designed to teach children about various forms of architecture and how buildings are constructed. They will learn about the foundations and framework of building. This month they will learn about Gothic style architecture, which spans  from 1100 to 1450. This form of architecture inspired painters, poets and religious thinkers in Great Britain and throughout Europe.

Spacing is limited to 12 participants and preregistration is required to participate. The program is free and open to the public.
