CLARK, NJ – Clark Preschoolers had a special story time with Clark Public Library’s children’s librarian Dierdre Morley this month.
The children were delighted with Morley’s book selection and her animated storytelling. Morley also gave a brief talk about the library. A field trip for the students to the library is planned for the spring.
“Reading to children is a very important pre-literacy activity. Reading to your child prepares them with a foundation for academic excellence,” Preschool Supervisor and Nurse Lori Kowalski said. “Some benefits of reading to preschoolers include a higher aptitude for learning, reinforcement of basic sounds that form language, and the attainment of valuable communication skills.”
The Clark Public Library invites parents to “Take Your Child to the Library Day” at 2 p.m. on Feb. 26. Sponsored by the Friends of the Library, the day will include a free family concert followed by ice cream sundaes.
