Jamaica Library to Celebrate New Kids’ Books with Open House
Jamaica Memorial Library trustees will host an open house on Tuesday, July 21, from 4:30 to 6 p.m., to celebrate the addition of 81 new books to its children’s collection. These books were awarded to the library by the Libri Foundation as part of their ‘Books for Children’ program. The Foundation supports the concept that children who learn to enjoy reading at an early age continue to read throughout their lives. In order to develop a love of reading, children must have access to books that stretch their imaginations, touch their emotions, and expand their horizons. Area children, families, and those who work with children are invited to check out the new books and enjoy a story time with guest reader Sharon Colvin, youth services consultant for the Vermont Department of Libraries. Refreshments will be served. Call 802-874-4901 for more information.
