We are proud to announce High Five!, an early literacy program in collaboration with The Greater Hudson Promise Neighborhood. This program will meet at the library Saturdays, 11am – 1pm, January 20, 27, and February 3, 10 & 17.
Families with a child, birth to five, can join a supportive community and learn fun, everyday activities to help build their child’s reading skills! There is a Story and Craft Hour, for ages 2+ in the library, with special guest readers (including our very own Library Director, Emily Chameides), while parents attend the discussion and activity session. Older siblings are welcome in the library during the program. Participants will receive free books and prizes each week! Lunch is also provided and transportation to the library is available.
Families will also have the opportunity to explore the hundreds of high-quality children’s books, available for check out at the library. There will be special events following sessions. The last Saturday ends with a field trip to Spotty Dog Books with each family that has participated in the program receiving a $25 gift certificate to spend at the store.
To sign up for High Five!, email firstname.lastname@example.org, call 518-828-1792 x101, or stop by the desk at the Hudson Area Library. This program is free and open to all families with children under five, and is wheelchair accessible.
