The Bethel Library begins its winter Story Time series for young children on Thursday, Dec. 3, at 10 a.m. There will be two Story Times in December, on the 3rd and 10th. The theme is "winter" and the books read will include "The Lost Mitten" by Jan Brett and "Cross Country-Cat" by Mary Calhoun. Story Time will take a break during the holiday season, and resume again in January. Story Time helps young children learn early literacy skills, language and listening skills, cultivates their imagination and creativity, and provides an opportunity for socialization. Best of all, Story Time is fun! Children learn to love reading and coming to the library. A parent or a caregiver must accompany the child.
The library is looking for parents, grandparents, and others who would like to read or sing with children during Story Time. To volunteer or for more information call Michelle at the library 824-2580. The Bethel Library is located at 5 Broad Street, across from the Common
On Wednesday Oct 28 at 6:30 pm , the Bethel Library will have a book talk and signing with Bob and Tom Remington.
