Winter Reading Program
Brown Bag Book Review
Every Wednesday during January from 12 until 1:00 pm, the Chatham library will host a book review presented in the meeting room by one of our friends and neighbors.
This year, Glenn Giles kicked off the series with his review of Founding Rivals: Madison vs Monroe, the Bill of Rights, and the Election that Saved a Nation by Chris DeRose. On January 14th, Linda Kauffelt reviewed The Death of Santini by Pat Conroy. Reviewers for the rest of the month will include Mary Tallent on January 21st and Susan Paynter on January 28th.
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. 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.
