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.”
