Hackettstown, N.J. – Centenary College’s Education Department is partnering with Taylor Memorial Library at Centenary College to offer Storytime in the Library! at 9 a.m. on Friday mornings starting on September 27, 2013. This opportunity is free and open to the public.  It designed for children ages 3 to 5. 

Students from the Centenary College’s Academic Foundation Course for first year students Those Who Can, Teach will serve as instructors, as well as students who are enrolled in the Foundations of Literacy course.

“This is an exciting opportunity to serve a need in the community by instilling a love of books in children at a young age,” says Timothy Domick, Director of Taylor Memorial Library.  “There is a need to offer more free storytime sessions in the community and we have the resources to fulfill that need.”

This is a win-win situation for all involved,” says Dr. Simon Saba, Associate Professor of Education at Centenary College.  “This project provides students with experience teaching children well before their student-teaching and practicum work, plus it benefits the children who attend.”

Taylor Memorial Library at Centenary College also houses Greene’s Beans Café, which is equipped with a full coffee bar, plus muffins, snacks and juice for the children.
Some sessions will include banjo music by Professor Noah Haiduc-Dale, Assistant Professor of History. The schedule for Storytime in the Library! is as follows: 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. Fridays from September 27 through November 22 and December 6, 2013.
