PCPL Family Time and Story Time return

Tuesday, September 6, 2011

Story Time is back at the Putnam Country Public Library.

Beginning Tuesday, Sept. 6 the library's Children's Department will be hosting four different story times every week through October.

The four separate hours are meant to draw listeners and story enthusiasts of all ages, telling or retelling classic, age-friendly stories.

On Tuesday evenings at 7 p.m. the PCPL Children's Department will hold Family Time, an occasion for adults and children alike to come together and enjoy the written word. Family Time will also include activities and games for everyone to get involved in the story.

Thursdays boast the majority of storytelling hours.

Starting at 10 a.m. there will be a designated Toddler Time, a 30-minute story time for kids under three years old and their parents. With stories, crafts, and games Toddler Time introduces young children to literature and lets them explore their creative sides.

A regular story time will be held at 11 a.m. each Thursday for children 3 to 7 years old, followed by a 4 p.m. hour for all school-age children.

The first week's theme will be classical fairy tales, a chance for everyone to reminisce on their favorite stories, or in some cases be introduced to these timeless tales. Each week will focus on a different theme.

The Children's Department is located on the lower level of the Putnam County Public Library, 103 E Poplar St., Greencastle.

For more information or question, persons may call Cortina Ziuchovski at 653-2755 or visit the library's website at www.putnam.lib.in.us.
