      Library makes reading fun for children

      Children are just a few weeks into the new school year, but some are not old enough to venture school hallways just yet. The Adair County Public Library has something just for them and their families. It is a new program called The Listening Hour. It will be held on the first, third and fifth Tuesday of each month from 6 to 7 p.m.

      The evening program will provide a time for families to hear classic children's stories. â??We're going to be reading, in a relaxed area, classic children stories,â?? said Diane Burger with the Adair County Public Library. â??So many times we know the animated version, and itâ??s not what was really written in the book the way the author intended.â?? Childrenâ??s Story Time last until April.

      Other programs include Wiggles and Giggles, which is for 2-year-olds. During the 30 minute program children will sing, listen to stories and do easy art crafts. Children must be accompanied by an adult during the program. It is on Thursdayâ??s beginning at 10:30 a.m. All morning programs begin at that time.

      Another program is The Bookworm Club for children ages 3, 4, and 5. It is a 45 minute program every Friday morning where students also do hands-on activities.

      Glow Worms is for children ages two to five. This program begins at 6 p.m. and will have stories, songs and crafts. It will be held on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of the month.

      September 7 the library will be hosting â??Controlling the Elementsâ?? for students in 3rd to 8th grades. Students can learn about water pressure, water flow and water polarity.
