The children’s winter reading program titled “Snow Better Time to Read!” is underway at the Goshen library.
To join the program, youngsters need only come to the library and pick up a record sheet. Participants will then record their progress every time they read a book or when someone reads a book to them.
They will receive a prize after they’ve finished 10 picture books or five chapter books. Those who successfully take part in a snowball toss game will have a chance to win a grand prize. Children who read a book from the library’s Winter Reading Selected List will earn an extra chance to win the grand prize.
The program is open to children through grade five. Parents of children younger than 7 must accompany them during the snowball toss game.
Storytime Express sessions are set for Wednesday and Thursday at 10:30 a.m. “Up and down” stories will be featured this week, and attendees will participate in a craft activity.
The First Grade Book Club will meet Wednesdays in the Children’s Storyhour Room from 4 to 5 p.m. starting Feb. 26th. Sign up by calling 537-0241 or stopping by the Children’s Services desk.
The Crafty Bandits group will meet Jan. 27 at 6:30 p.m. in the auditorium. During this session, the Bandits will create “magnetic self-portraits.” This program is open to young people in grades six through 12. Register for this free program by calling 533-9531.
