Pre-School Story & Craft Time

Join the Jamerson Memorial Library staff for Preschool Story & Craft Times on Wednesdays starting at 11:00 a.m.  A staff member will read a simple story to be followed by a craft project that reflects the story.  This is a great way to introduce your toddlers to reading & help them gain the skills they will need to enter daycare or kindergarten, teaching them the basics of sharing, socialization & setting up a love of reading & education.   Once a month we will try & host a "Mommy & Me Math Moment", as math plays a huge role in learning to read.  Be sure to follow us in the local newspapers & on our Facebook page for upcoming events like Story & Craft Time, photos of post events or the latest announcements.
