Children’s Services Aplenty

Listen to the broadcast here.

Hello, this is Michele Skolmutch, Children’s Library Associate at the Holmes County District Public Library for The Voice of Holmes

The library offers a variety of programs and activities for children of all ages. Parents will also find a wide variety of materials in the children’s room to help their child succeed in school.

Library programs include preschool story time for young children not yet in kindergarten. Each program includes stories, songs, rhymes and music. We incorporate literacy skills into each program. Teaching these skills is part of a state wide initiative to make sure children are ready to read and learn when they enter kindergarten. Not only do we share these with the children, but we hope to teach parents to reinforce these skills at home when reading with their child.

Our programs for school-aged children include our Wacky World of Science, Awesome Adventures in History and Nifty Nature programs filled with fun, hands-on activities that combine literacy with the basic concepts of science, history and the natural world. Stop in to the children’s room at the library to ask us about the current schedule of programs.

The children’s room also houses a Parent/Teacher collection that can be used to teach basic reading and math skills and basic concepts such as colors, shapes and numbers.

If you are not sure about what books would be appropriate for your child’s reading level, drop in and ask us for help.

Serving children, parents and caregivers is at the heart of the services and programs we offer in the children’s room.
