Here come the preschoolers! Story Time next week at the Museum

In celebration of the 20th annual Children’s Week, the East Central Georgia Regional Library, in conjunction with the Augusta Museum of History, will host local public figures, politicians, and media personalities as storytellers during Children’s Week Story Time, to be held Tuesday, October 7 through Thursday, October 9, 2008, at the Museum.

On Thursday, October 9, 2008 at 11:00 am, Story Time will be offered to the general public, marking the first time Story Time has been expanded to include area families with young children. Families with young children still at home are invited to reserve a space by calling the Museum at 706-722-8454. Space is Limited and reservations are required by October 7, 2008.
Each year the Augusta Partnership for Children, Inc. and several of its community partners join together to coordinate Children’s Week. Now in its 20th consecutive year, Children’s Week features a variety of events for children of all ages and their families. Children’s Week provides opportunities for parents and families to experience various resources in the community and, in addition, participate in fun and enriching activities for children.

Children’s Week Story Time, attended by local preschools and area families, will take place in the Augusta Museum of History’s exhibit, Augusta’s Story, from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon each day. Each group will hear four stories during their story time hour.

Each child participating in Story Time will receive a book. Special thanks to Georgia Public Broadcasting for donating the books!

Bring your child to experience the art of storytelling and the joys of reading at Children's Story Time!
