This week Saturday, January 20, 11am-1pm join our High Five! program, a collaboration with Greater Hudson Promise Neighborhood. This will be our first in the new High Five! series (as last Saturday was canceled due to inclement weather). Pamela Badila, local resident and member of the Diata Diata International Folkloric Theater will be doing a folktelling session with the children. Then she and our High Five! facilitator Kathy Mabb will be discussing how to incorporate story telling into family life as a means of encouraging early literacy development. There will be free books, prizes and a fresh cooked lunch will be served. Transportation is available. Email firstname.lastname@example.org, call 518-828-1792 x101, or stop by the desk at the Hudson Area Library to register for the program and to make transportation arrangements.
In High Five! 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, each Saturday will feature special guest readers, while parents attend the discussion and activity session. Older siblings are welcome in the library during the program. Families will also have the opportunity to explore the hundreds of high-quality children’s books, available for check out at the library.
