Summer Reading Program
The summer just got a whole lot cooler! Join the Lawrence County Public Library as we celebrate our theme “All Together Now” from July 7 through July 25. Children from toddlers to seventh grade are eligible to sign up for a reading log at the Lawrence County Public Library beginning June 26 and earn prizes and books during the month of July. Join us at 3 p.m. for the kick-off party on July 11 at the Moulton Lions Club! All summer reading events and special events are free and will meet on Tuesday afternoons at the Moulton Lions Club at 3 p.m. Families that read together succeed together. Children who read during the summer gain reading skills, while those who do not can slide backward. Termed the “summer slide” and affecting millions of children each year, teachers can spend at least one-month re-teaching materials students have forgotten during that time. The Lawrence County Public Library keeps learning fun throughout the summer break! Take part in the summer reading program through our presenters and prizes. Summer Reading events, prizes and books for all ages are made possible with support from the United Way and the Friends of the Lawrence County Public Library.
Children's Story Time
Children’s Story Time are every Tuesday @ 10:30 a.m. The program meets weekly and is open to children from infancy to five-years-old. An adult must accompany children. Library Story Times play an important role in early childhood literacy. According to the Program for Early Parent Support, “children benefit from hearing another adult read to them, from watching other children get engaged in a story, and from being exposed to a wide variety of authors and writing styles. Your child will also learn some essential school readiness skills, like how to sit still for an extended period of time, how to pay attention to an adult other than his parents, how to take turns, and how to be (reasonably) quiet in a public place.”
Tiny Tots Story Time
The LCPL is pleased to announce we will be introducing a Tiny Tots Storytime for ages 2 and under in April to gage interest as an ongoing program. Beginning Thursday, April 6th, Tiny Tots Storytime will meet at the LCPL at 10:30 a.m. on Thursday mornings. The program will last approximately 30 minutes. Tiny Tots Storytime incorporates reading, singing, talking and playing at story time while introducing parents and caregivers to ways to add these activities into everyday life. This program is specifically for children ages 2 and under and their accompanying adult(s). The program will run April and May to determine if there is enough interest to add it as an ongoing program to the LCPL’s Fall schedule.
