Winter Reading Program
Brown Bag Book Reviews
Every Wednesday during February from noon until 1:00 pm, the Chatham library hosts a book review presented by one of our friends and neighbors.
You can bring your lunch, or just come and listen. The library provides hot beverages and snacks, and we guarantee a fun and stimulating hour. The reviewer for this month include Rick Dixon on February 4th, Barbara Wilson on February 11th, Joan Shelton on February 18th, and Bill and Mary Black on February 25th. Join us!
Early Literacy Programs
Join us for free preschool early literacy classes. Sing, talk, read, write, play - those are the building blocks of literacy for young children, and the library is the place for those skills to take shape.
We offer Mother Goose on the Loose story times on Mondays at 11:00 am in Chatham and on Fridays at 10:30 am in Mt. Hermon. This award-winning program for children birth to age three incorporates nursery rhymes, music, and rhythm instruments in laying the foundations for literacy in the very young child.
Wednesdays for Wees is held on Wednesday mornings at 10:00 am for Brosville, Chatham, Gretna and Mt. Hermon. Children from birth to 5 yrs are welcome at this program in partnership with Smart Beginnings.
In addition to our regularly scheduled preschool story times, we offer special story times which can be found on our branch calendars.
