Fayette library children's programs 09.09.2010

Written by David Green.

Children’s programs at Fayette’s Normal Memorial Library get underway this month.

After School

 A new program, the Tween After School Program, is scheduled for students in fifth through eighth grade. The new group will meet for the first time from 3 to 3:45 p.m. Sept. 14, to discuss what days would be best to meet and what activities students are interested in. Participants should bring their ideas to the first gathering.

Children in kindergarten through fourth grade will meet from 3 to 4 p.m. on Thursdays. This month’s activities will include making sculptures with modeling clay and a Bingo party.

If parents would like their child to get off the bus at the library for the after-school program, send a note to school with them.

Story Time

Story Time, scheduled for children age two through five who are not yet in kindergarten, is scheduled from 6 to 6:30 p.m. on Mondays. An adult is required to stay with children age two and three during the program.

This month, children will register and decorate their Story Time rugs, and learn about hippos and monkeys through stories and crafts.

For more information, call the library at 237-2115.

    HUDSON RUNNER Jacob Morgan looks toward the top of the hill with dismay during the tough finish at Harrison Lake State Park. Fayette runner Jacob Garrow focuses on the summit, also, during the Eagle Invitational cross country run Saturday morning. Continuing rain and drizzle made the course even more challenging. Results of the race are in this week’s Observer.
