Hi! I’m Sally Thomas and I’m a library associate in the children’s department at the North Canton Public Library.
The children’s department offers programs for children from babies up to fifth graders. I have a program called Reading Round Up for children 3 to 5 years old. I offer an Evening Story Time for that age group once a month when possible. I have Saturday parties for 2 to 6 year olds that offer a short program followed by crafts and games. Information on dates and times for these and other programs are now available. (If you want to see what programs we offer, look here.) I visit many of the Kindergarten classes in North Canton with a short program once a month.
If you come to our children’s department in the evening on the first or third Tuesday of the month, you will see Sarge, our Tail-Wagging Tutor. Sarge is a golden retriever who comes in twice a month to listen to children read to him. Children love to practice their reading with Sarge and Sarge loves the attention. I love to see the children’s reading skills improve because they are excited about reading to Sarge. Register for a ten minute session with Sarge by calling or visiting the children’s department desk. 330.499.4712 x318
Come into the children’s department soon to see what we have to offer. Don’t forget to check out the “New Book” shelves to see the newest additions to our collection of books, DVDs and more!
