Brownstown Public Library offering children’s programs


A series of children’s programs has been planned for August at Brownstown Public Library, 120 E. Spring St.

Circle of Friends Story Time is for children ages 2 to 6 and is set for 3:30 to 4 p.m. today, Aug. 9, 16, 23 and 30.

Each week, children will be introduced to a different theme through a combination of stories, songs, finger plays and crafts.

Children who attend this program should be able to color and use glue sticks independently. A parent or guardian must attend with children under 3 to assist with finger plays and craft projects.

The Teen Readers Advisory Club for students entering fifth through 12th grade will meet from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. Thursday.

The club advises the library on teen interests and trends. Members recommend titles for the young adult collection and suggest ideas for teen programs.

Participants must have read one book from the young adult collection before each meeting. During the meeting, each participant will give a brief book talk about their selection. The goal of a book talk is to tell enough about the title to encourage fellow teens to read the title without giving away the ending.

Following the book talks, teens will have time to socialize, make recommendations for future programs and participate in various group activities.

Snacks will be provided during all meetings. Registration is required.

If Brownstown Central Community School Corp. closes due to weather, all youth programming will be canceled.
