Anyone who says they have only one life to live must not know how to read a book. ~Author Unknown
I know that it’s still summer, but already you can start to feel that little nip in the air at night, and know that summer is on it’s way out. Kids are back to school, and the whole routine of homework, after school activities, sports and more has begun again.
Well, the library is calming down a bit after all the summer excitement of the Summer Reading Game, and nonstop programs. At the library we are busy getting ready to return to our routine of story times. Specifically, story times for young children. I work at three libraries in Fremont: Fremont Main Library, Irvington Library and Niles Library. And I am looking forward to one of my favorite parts of the job: story times! Starting the week of September 9, both Niles and Irvington will begin their story times for preschoolers 3-5 and the following week Fremont starts their story times for preschoolers. Check our event calendar for specific times and days. You might also want to check out what great storytimes other Alameda C ounty Libraries are offering.
.At storytime, we not only read the children books. We play music, dance, sing and generally have a fun time. We make reading fun. The children learn so much by coming to storytime. They learn to sit and listen with a group of children. They learn to see colors, shapes, alphabet, numbers, and follow a story. They learn to get up and dance and use their creativity. We help create a love of books and reading that will help the children as they progress through school and their lives.
They learn that with reading they can go anywhere they choose. They can live many lives through the stories that books have to tell. Make reading a priority for your child. Come to your local library and join us for storytime!
