Early Literacy Program at the Library:
Our early literary STEM TO READ program sponsored by Northern New Mexico United Way is off to a great start! This is a program to help parents and caregivers learn how to prepare children ages two- five years to be ready to read. We need for both children and parents to participate together in our Early Literacy Story time sessions. We were excited to have the Early Childhood Center from Canones attend our first session on September 17th on letter recognition. The theme was “Autumn”, so we looked at lots of beautiful colors and played with enjoyable stories and reading activities based on these stories. Everyone had a good time. Long time reading educator Isabel Lopez is the lead teacher for this program. The next session will be on Wednesday, October 1st. Please note the time change; the program will now start at 11AM and last until 1 PM. We will be exploring ways for families to make time each day to point out letters and numbers and other necessary steps to give their children a head start towards letter and number recognition and be better prepared for early schooling. You will learn some useful steps to help your young children connect with books and to continue their love for learning.
This program is free! Join us twice monthly on Wednesdays from 11am until 1pm to give your young children a head start towards learning! Call the Library to sign up in advance at (505)685-4884.
Every Library Day:
Remember that you have access to free Internet service, all kinds of great books, magazines and copy machine services. You don’t need to travel to Espanola to make photocopies or send faxes. Support your local community by using our facilities here.
We are still exploring the best time schedule for classes in computer literacy. If you are interested in a six weeks/once a week class for a cost of $50 for the entire six sessions, please call the Library to sign up @ (505) 685-4884. Once we get a full class and appropriate schedule, we will notify all participants who would pay the class fee at that time.
