Summer Family Storytime (SFST) was born 2 years ago for those who can’t make it to our popular Stories in the Park program on Tuesday mornings due to scheduling conflicts. The program is held on Saturday mornings at 11:00, and is basically a repeat of the previous Tuesday’s Stories in the Park program, but we meet inside, and I get to add a craft :) (which is practically impossible to do in the park. You never know how many people will show up - and how to cart all those supplies??).
Here are a few of the crafts we have enjoyed making at SFST so far this summer:
During the summer, Youth Services staff spend a lot of our energies reaching out to our local community organizations. The library does not exist solely between our building’s walls - you may see us anywhere! Whether it’s visiting Cass Park summer camp, Coddington Community Center, or various Headstart locations or it’s hosting the GIAC Tiny Tots or BOCES Smith school students here at the library, we love bringing books and activities to all our communities’ children! This year, we were excited to add Downtown Ithaca Childcare Center and Global Roots Play School to our schedule!
