KIDS' READING PROGRAM TO RESUME AT LIBRARY

Sept. 6, 2001 – The Saturday children's reading program at the Enid M. Baa Library will resume this weekend in the Children's Room on the ground floor of the building.
Hours are 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The program is free and open to all children 3 to 11 years of age. Younger children should be accompanied by a parent, guardian or other adult.
The Friends of the St. Thomas Public Libraries is continuing to provide volunteers to read to children and organize reading-related games and arts and crafts activities.
The core group of young people who have taken part in the program regularly in recent months is expected to expand as newcomers arrive with the start of the new school year. For that reason, the Friends group is seeking more volunteers to read, bring in activities, play games with the children, and generally create a positive attitude toward reading, a press release stated.
Many new books have been added to the library over the past few weeks, including donations from Rotary groups and individuals. These new acquisitions have been catalogued and are available for borrowing, the release said.
