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.
Michael Morton will be bringing his Petting Zoo which will be located outside in the parking lot of our library. Children will be able to interact with his animals as well as feed and touch them. There are many types of animals such as lambs, goats, rabbits, chickens and many more. All ages are welcome.
Are you a grandparent raising your grandchildren? You are not alone. There are 2.9 million children in the US that have a grandparent as their primary caregiver, and 74% of grandparents babysit or provide weekly care for their grandchildren. We would like to help you with the challenges that come along with being responsible for your grandchildren, by providing resources and support from people who are going through similar circumstances.
We will be learning about the care for teeth and how important it is to have regular cleaning as well as checkups.
Don't forget to check out our evening story time! Every 2nd and 4th Wednesday at 6:00 PM you are invited to join us for a light story and craft to spark your imagination before bed. The book for June 14 is Bike On, Bear! by Cynthia Liu, and the book for June 28 is Memoirs of a Goldfish by Devin Scillian.
Jeffery Magic will be bringing his summer reading puppets and magic show.
