Coming Soon: Art Exhibit “Harvest” for all ARLS Branches

ARLS will stir up this summer’s exhibits for a new look in new locations. The “Harvest” exhibit invites viewers to draw new connections between the three separate exhibits presented this summer. Revisit the exhibit pieces and imagine your own exhibit. Which pieces of art would you show together, and why? What would your exhibit be called?

Story time programs aim to instill a love of reading by encouraging parents and other special adults to read aloud to children.   Activities in story time promote brain and language development for children from birth to age 5. At story time, children and caregivers are introduced to six early literacy skills that are essential for learning to read including print motivation, narrative skills, phonological awareness, vocabulary, letter knowledge, and print awareness.
