We are currently taking registration for our Mother Goose Storytime program in September, which is for children ages birth to 18 months old and their caregivers. The program is from 9:30-10 a.m. on Wednesdays and Thursdays between September 4-26. When registering, you sign up for either Wednesday or Thursday every week, and your registration covers all four weeks of the program. Space is limited, so register soon by calling 423-434-4458.
Mother Goose Storytime consists of learning rhymes and songs, reading age-appropriate books, and spending quality time with your children. According to Youth Services Manager Betty Cobb, “Through research we know that children learn to read best when the five practices of playing, talking, singing, writing, and reading are nurtured. There are ways parents can begin helping their children learn even as babies. The Mother Goose program is a really great opportunity for parents to see these simple practices modeled so they can do them at home.”
Mother Goose starts on Wednesday, September 4, so register today by calling 423-434-4458! For updates on children’s storytimes, visit www.jcpl.org, call 423-434-4458, and follow Johnson City Public Library on Facebook and Instagram.
