Children’s Programs at The Cornwall Library
LEGO® After School Program
March 17, 24 and 31
3 – 5 pm
The Cornwall Library is sponsoring an after-school LEGO® program for Middle School children. In her July 1, 2009 article for the School Library Journal entitled “Block Party: LEGOS in the Library,” Abbe Klebanoff wrote that playing with Legos “contributes to early literacy development by increasing attention span, memory, creativity, and language and vocabulary skills”. A study by Dorothy Singer, a senior research scientist at Yale University’s Department of Psychology and Child Study Center, found that playing with LEGOS “lays the foundation for logical mathematical thinking, scientific reasoning, and problem solving.”
$10 for all three sessions. Limited space. Please contact the Library for details.
We would greatly appreciate donations of LEGOS for the program. LEGOS will be sanitized before play.
Toddler Play Group
As children grow, their needs—and those of their parents–change, but there has been renewed interest in establishing a new morning playgroup, and someone has volunteered to spearhead this project. Please contact the Library to sign up if you are interested in a playgroup for your toddler.
Check late spring and summer editions of the monthly Library newsletter for information on summer programming for children.
