Huntington Library offers a variety of weekly story times through out the summer to help children develop skills that aide in reading development. Story times include stories, rhymes, songs, and craft activities. Separate story times are offered for toddlers, preschoolers, and older children. All story times require preregistration and are free of charge. Registration starts Monday, June 12th.
Join us on Thursday, June 8th from 9am to 12pm for a special Story Walk – a great way to combine literacy and physical fitness! Children will go on a guided exercise adventure in Huntington Park. Each station will have a page from the book posted at it with an exercise. Volunteers from Get Fit Otsego and the Library will be on site. Includes a healthy snack and beverage. Recommend for children ages 2-6.
Robert Bensen will read from Before You Know It, a collection of poems which concern transformative events in life–those moments that arrest us and do not let go, events that propel us out of our familiar frames of reference and so we never completely leave them behind. They stay with us, lurk in our imagination, return unexpectedly, demand our attention, keep alive in us. Their demands on us become the motive for the poem. Program Date: Saturday, May 27th 1:30pm
This event is funded in part by Poets & Writers with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature. A special HML Writers Group event. Free and open to the public.
