STEPS Story Time under new management

It’s that time of year again! On September 10 we invite you to the inaugural kickoff for the 2019-2020 STEPS Story Time program.Picture of Ian Ferguson

This exciting and interactive program is now headed by our new Youth Services Librarian, Ian Ferguson. Ian joined the library team August 5 and comes to us from Delaware County District Public Library. He is a recent graduate of Kent State University with a Masters in Library and Information Science. He earned his undergraduate degree in History with an Education minor at the College of Wooster.

As a quick reminder, STEPS Story Time is best suited for children aged three to five, but siblings are welcome to attend as well. Going forward, STEPS Story Time will be held every Tuesday from 10:45 a.m. to 11:45 a.m.  Each week’s session will focus on a different and fun theme featuring engaging stories, catchy songs, energetic action rhymes, and other fun activities!

As a whole, our STEPS Story Time program is designed to build early literacy skills in young children, while also encouraging their natural curiosity and creativity – which ultimately prepares them to be successful readers and lifelong learners. Parents and caregivers are also encouraged to participate in the program with the children. If you have any questions, feel free to call the library at 419-864-8181. We hope to see you there!
