Children’s Story Class at Sayre Public Library

The Sayre Public Library is holding Children’s Story Class on Wednesdays at 10:30 am.

During Children’s Story Class, children will enjoy age appropriate stories, songs, and activities. Activities are focused on the arts, language development, math and science skills, fine motor skills, sensory development, and social development. The program is designed for children ages baby to five.

The story classes at the Sayre Public Library were created in response to continuing research that shows the importance of sharing language with young children. Early childhood reading programs help to prepare children to learn to read and love books. The early introduction of language play, books, rhymes, and songs into a child’s life offers variety of experiences. Story times introduce children to new words and experiences, exposes listeners to the enjoyment that can be experienced from reading and exercises children’s imaginations.

The Sayre Public Library has been providing outstanding service to the Sayre borough since 1936 and provides free programs.
