Digital Storytime: November 18th at 6:30 PM
On Tuesday, November 18 at 6:30 PM, Children’s Library Assistant Mary Conable will present a special digital storytime for all ages. The program will introduce families to the library’s recently acquired iPad. She will be using the iPad to enhance an early-literacy storytime, with elements that support the five critical activities that support early learning: reading, singing, playing, writing, and talking. The activities will give participants a chance to explore the apps that will be available at the library for use by individual families during library visits. There will also be time for questions about putting together a sensible media diet for your family. You are welcome to bring your own iPad, too. The iPad is made available through support from the Pioneer Library System, which assists the 42 public libraries in Ontario, Wayne, Wyoming and Livingston counties.  Nineteen libraries received iPads and training in their use in early literacy activities.  Each library will download apps that meet patron needs in its service area.
