NORTH WEBSTER — It’s never too early to instill the love of learning in your child. Registration for Baby and Toddler Time begins Aug. 24 at North Webster Community Public Library. Baby and Toddler Time will be held 11 a.m. every Tuesday starting Sept. 7 through Nov. 23.
While sitting on their parent or caregiver’s lap, the little ones explore books and stories, sing songs with simple hand motions and engage in meaningful play. Each 20-minute session is followed by a short play time. Parents are also given resources and ideas for fostering early literacy skills in their children. For ages birth to 36 months, Baby and Toddler Time is a fun way to spend quality bonding time with your child while exploring and learning together.
The library’s youth department also caters to teens with a dedicated teen area filled with books and audio books that appeal to tweens, teens and young adults. There they will find graphic novels and popular series.
Kids through adults can enjoy their favorite ebooks and audio books anywhere anytime on their mobile devices and home computers by downloading the Libby App from the App Store or Google Play. By using your library card, you can browse, search and access ebooks and audio books for free. Check out the details at meet.libbyapp.com.
The traveling Smithsonian Water/Ways Exhibit has moved on to Rolling Prairie where it will be displayed at the LaPorte County Library. While the exhibit was at North Webster Library, it drew in 1,603 visitors of whom 78 per cent were from outside the local area. Over 308 volunteer hours were expended and 648 persons attended the numerous related programs. The library’s historic photo exhibit will remain a permanent display mounted near the Local History and Genealogy Department. The Watershed Foundation’s Land of Lakes Exhibit will continue at the library through Labor Day and then be on display at Syracuse Community Center before moving to Warsaw Public Library.
