Science Mike was great! He had a very interactive program for children centering around science: holograms, optical illusions, robots and magnets. This program was a way for parents who work through the week to take their children to a library program. Take a look at some photos:
What’s the most important card in your wallet?
Your library card, of course.
September is Library Card Sign-up Month. Get a library card, use it to check out books and DVDs. Use it to use our computers.
To celebrate libraries during this month, we have a special program planned: a fun event for the entire family–Science Mike.
He’ll be bringing and demonstrating his collection of science toys. You’ll see a 3D hologram, dancing robots, and optical illusions.
Saturday, September 17, 10am at Emily Taber Public Library
Tuesday, September 20, 6:30pm at Bradford Co. Public Library
Saturday, September 24, 11am at Union Co. Public Library
Programs feature books, stories, crafts, performers, and general fun as we share our love of books and reading with children.
Check your library for a schedule or view it online here.
> As with many things in life, there is good and bad about the internet. We want your children to be safe while using the Internet.
This summer, we’ll use short video programs for children that will show them how to stay safer while using the internet.
Just as you caution your children about ‘stranger danger,’ parents and children need to be aware of potential internet dangers.
Each program is from the Center for Missing and Exploited Children and is geared to different age levels. These programs will supplement what you have taught your children and what they have learned in school.
All in an effore to make children safety aware.
Libraries statewide are gearing up for summer programs. Locally we have an exciting summer planned. Storytellers, magicians, and clowns will join library staff for programs, books, crafts, reading and fun. Rumors of ice cream abound.
It is known that in order for students to maintain their reading proficiency, they need to keep reading during the summer months when school is not in session.
Reading is like learning to plan the piano: you get better with practice. And you need to practice every day.
Check your library for a copy of the summer schedule. Program schedules are also posted on the library webpage and in the library events section.
>Programs for preschool children will continue through December. Union County Library and Bradford County Library present programs for preschoolers and their grownups each week.
Programs at Union County are on Wednesday and Thursday mornings at 10am. Programs at Bradford County are on Wednesday morning at 10am. Check the full schedule and program theme at: Library Events.
These programs are a great way to introduce children to the library, hear a good story, and share in activities selected just for preschoolers. It is also a good way for parents to network and meet others that have children the same age.
>Summer programs for children are coming to an end. There is still time to attend one or two. Check our schedule here for a list of programs remaining.
Emily Taber Library in Baker County has had to cancel their summer programs due to construction.
Summer library programs aim to keep children reading during the summer months so that children don’t lose their reading proficiency.
>We’ve added a new section to our main webpage that lists library events in the three counties. Included are programs for children, such as storytimes. Programs for adults, such as computer classes and book clubs, are also listed. You can register on line.
