Children’s Story Hour.

The Towanda District Library has a weekly Wednesday morning pre-school story hour at 10:30. Pre-school Story Hours run from first Wednesday after Labor Day to the Wednesday prior to Memorial Day. Pre-schoolers may participate in the Summer Reading Program on Wednesday mornings at 10:30 or Monday evenings at 4:30 during the summer. Open enrollment allows you to register your child whenever they turn three – by stopping in at the library or by calling 728-2176.

Summer Reading Program.

Each year the library presents a Summer Reading Program designed to preserve the reading skills of our young readers. Studies suggest that children who read as few as six books over the summer maintain the level of reading skills they achieved during the preceding school year. Reading more books leads to even greater success.  (Source: http://teacher.scholastic.com/products/instructor/summer_reading.htm )

Weekly programs at the Towanda District Library provide engaging, interactive performances, community speakers, craft projects, games, readers’ theater, and reading challenges. Each Wednesday morning at 10:30 a.m. and each Monday evening at 4:30 p.m. the library provides a variety of age-appropriate programs for readers (approximately ages 7 to 12) and non-readers (ages 3 to 6 years).

Open enrollment allows children to join the fun anytime during the Summer Reading program. Prizes are awarded to youth who reach their individual reading goals.
