Fayette library reading programs 3.12

Written by David Green.

The community’s youngest residents will soon have their own time at the library.

Fayette’s Normal Memorial Library will begin the “Wee Read” program in April, targeting children up to two years old. A parent is required to remain with their child throughout the program.

Stories, finger-plays, music and other events are planned. Participants are invited to bring a pillow for comfortable seating.

Wee Read is planned from 5:30 to 6 p.m. Mondays, starting April 7 with rhymes.

Participants are asked to call the library or stop in at the circulation desk to register for the sessions.

STORY HOUR—Story time programs will cover a variety of topics at the library.

March programs cover well-known stories. Next week “Peter Rabbit” will be read and the following week will bring “Little Red Riding Hood.”

Animals are on the agenda for April.

AFTER-SCHOOL—The After School program for school children continues with crafts, movies and parties. Students in grades three to six are invited Tuesdays and kindergarten through second graders come on Thursdays. Both programs are scheduled from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m.

A craft is planned next week.

Toddler Time for three-year-olds is scheduled Mondays from 6:30 to 7 p.m. Story Hour, Tuesdays from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., is for four- and five-year-olds not yet in kindergarten.

    ART PARK—A design created by Poggemeyer Design Group shows a “pocket art park” in the green space south of the State Line Observer building. The proposal includes a 12-foot sculpture based on a design created by Morenci sixth grade student Klara Wesley through a school and library collaboration. A wooden band shell is located at the back of the lot. The Observer wall would be covered with a synthetic stucco material. City council members are considering ways to fund the estimated $125,000 project and perhaps tackling construction one step at a time.
