1000booksFall Storytimes at CCLD libraries are just around the corner, beginning the week of September 14 at all branches; check our website for dates and times. We offer storytimes for babies, toddlers and preschoolers and all are drop in, no registration is required. Storytimes are a wonderful way to introduce your child to the joys of reading and increase their vocabulary, as well as help them to learn social skills. Our storytimes are full of fun too…interactive songs, flannel stories, rhymes and props that enhance the experience and make it pleasurable for caregivers as well as kids…and while you’re at the library, sign up for our latest early literacy program: 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten. (Currently available at Steele, Horseheads and Big Flats Libraries and funded by the Friends of the Horseheads Library.) This free, self-paced program challenges parents and caregivers to read at least 1,000 books before the child enters school. Research has shown that reading to children helps them be better prepared for school as it builds their vocabulary and stimulates language and cognitive skills. Reading together is great for bonding too, and stories read in storytime or at daycare can count as well. Ask us about this exciting new offering and we’ll see you soon at Storytime!

Happy Reading!
