“Thankful for Knowledge,” the theme of the fourth Saturday Children’s Program at Sandhills Community College, will be held on November 18 from 10-11:30 am.
Children are invited to come enjoy stories and poems of the season. A selection of crafts to go along with the stories will be offered as well as other activities, bookmarks, and treats for all. There will also be stories and poems to honor active duty military and veterans. Mary Ellen Cravotta, a children’s librarian and the Director of the Saturday Children’s Program will offer readings at 10:15 am and 11 am.
These Saturday sessions, for children in Pre-K -5th grade with an adult, aim to build a culture of reading and a love of books for children and their parents, relatives, or guardians, strengthen family bonds, and remind us all that shared-reading creates powerful memories and a love of the written language.
The first three Saturday programs saw 158 children and parents from across Moore County and averaged 72 participants per session.
