The Delaware County District Library will be open our regular hours on Presidents’ Day, Monday, February 18, 2013. Stop in to pick up a bestseller, a blockbuster DVD, to read a magazine or newspaper, or simply to relax.
We are also offering story times on Monday. At the Delaware (Main) Library, Baby Story Time will be held from 11:00-12:00 a.m. Believe it or not, getting your child ready to read begins at birth. Baby Time at DCDL involves rhymes, movement activities, songs, books and playtime. It is structured to be 20 minutes of interactive rhymes, songs and stories, and then the remaining 40 minutes are open play. For babies from birth to 24 months.
It’s Magic Time at the Powell Branch from 2:00-3:00, for children 5-8 years old. Does your child want to learn cool magic tricks to show his or her friends? Check out this great program where you can learn how to perform illusions that amaze! Pre-registration is required. Call 614-888-9160 or stop in today.
Family Story Time will be at the Delaware Library on Monday from 6:30-7:30 p.m. Family Story Time is a combination of books, flannel stories, songs, rhymes and sometimes crafts. We include activities that appeal to a wider age range so the whole family can join in on the fun. Engaging children in simple but powerful activities every day help them develop early literacy skills that help them get ready to read. These activities or practices are talking, singing, reading, writing and playing. All of our story times are planned using these skills that educate your children in fun, interactive and effective ways.
