Summer is almost here! See below for the new schedule.
The Appomattox Regional Library System hosts story time series throughout the year. Join us for an entertaining and educational half hour of books, songs and rhymes with Youth Services staff Heather Maury, Ann Moore, and Jeanine Albiges.
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.

Early Literacy Classes for Families featuring Rhonda Lee, Literacy Specialist
Appomattox Regional Library System (ARLS) invites parents and caregivers to join Rhonda Lee, an Early Literacy specialist, following select Story Time sessions at the Hopewell and Prince George libraries to learn ways to encourage early literacy skills in your children. Early literacy encompasses everything a child knows about reading and writing before he or she can read or write. Developing these skills will help your child become a strong, independent reader. Parents and caregivers will receive helpful tips and tricks as well as easy, inexpensive ways to help your child develop valuable skills and love reading.
No classes at this time. Stay tuned for future schedules!
