Every Child Ready to Read, Fridays (10-11 AM), starting May 13

Join us with your children at the library on Fridays (10-11 AM) for the Every Child Ready to Read program.  This six week program focuses on developing early literacy skills in children 3-5 years old.  Each session focuses on a key early literacy skill including: narrative skills, letter knowledge, print awareness, phonological awareness, print motivation, and vocabulary.  The sessions are designed to be informative (and fun) for both parents and children.  Research has shown that stong early literacy skills can often lead to future success in other types of learning.

Election for Library Board of Trustees: Tuesday, May 17 (9 AM-9 PM)

On Tuesday, May 17 (9 AM to 9 PM) there will be an election for two positions on the Fulton Public Library Board of Trustees.  Voting locations are: Fulton West—CiTi (BOCES) 806 West Broadway; Fulton East—Cayuga Community College, 11 River Glen Drive.  Further details and instructions for petitions to nominate candidates are available at the library front desk.

Early Literacy Story Times, every Tuesday and Friday (10 AM)

The library is continuing our very popular story times and craft activities for Pre-K children.  On Tuesday (10 AM), we have Story Time and Friday (10 AM), we feature ABC story hour with a focus on learning letters and the alphabet.  These story hour programs are designed to help children learn early literacy skills such as print recognition, phonics, vocabulary, and narrative skills.  Research has shown that children with developed early literacy skills have an easier transition into the school environment, which can result in future academic success.

Board Game Club, Saturday, 2 PM (New day and time)

Board games are a great way to socialize, engage your mind, and have fun.  Instruction on the rules of each game will be provided.  The library is inviting all those who love games to participate and bring their own ideas.  Role playing, war, strategy, traditional classics...everything is on the table.  The Board Game Club will meet each Saturday in the children's section of the library.
