PBS KIDS Library Corner

April 22, 2010 trixiecat

A cool new area has suddenly appeared in the children’s floor! It’s called the Library Corner. Here’s how Mr. Blinn explains it:

“Today we are launching our PBS KIDS RAISING READERS LIBRARY CORNER. PBS KIDS Raising Readers is a national literacy campaign which is focused on building reading skills at home, at school, in child care, and in the community.

This year the Raising Readers program involves 30 PBS affiliates and over 200 public libraries and school libraries. As a participant, we have created the Library Corner, a unique space in our library for kids to play reading games with their favorite PBS KIDS characters. Beginning today through the end of July, children can come to the Library Corner for printable activities based on popular PBS Kids shows and to access the PBS Kids Island website for fun reading games. During our summer reading program in June and July, we will also have scheduled weekly activities.

In addition, on May 6, Topeka’s PBS station KTWU will be offering a Ready to Learn workshop at the library. Parents, educators, and child care providers will be able to learn how to use PBS KIDS television programs to help children’s reading and literacy skills. We hope that our Library Corner will be a valuable resource for the education of our community’s children!”

Did you understand all that. I didn’t, but this sure looks like a cozy place to hang out!
