The library will be closed Thursday, December 7th for staff training. Any materials due that day will be given a grace period.
Each Wednesday morning from 10:30 to 11:30 preschoolers are invited to enjoy stories, songs, crafts, and other pre-literacy building activities at the library. Very young children and their even younger siblings learn about the magical place that is “the library.” Regular attendance at Story Hours shapes the way your child will always see and use the library. Stories are a wonderful way to explore and develop social/emotional awareness. Story Hours are a great place to meet and make friends! Story Hours are held every Wednesday from Labor Day to Memorial Day.
Tuesday, December 12th @ 5 pm the group discusses “Rain Reign” by Ann Martin and “Drowned City: Hurricane Katrina & New Orleans” by Don Brown. These titles give a glimpse into the 4th & 5th Grade Book Club’s favorites. Award-worthy books, at a different reading level. Joining a book discussion adds a whole new dimension to your reading! You are invite to join this discussion group whenever the books interest you. TOWANDA READS meets the 2nd Tuesday of even-numbered months.
