Storytime Thursdays & Fridays
Preschool story time introduces 0-6 year olds to books and reading through songs, stories, and crafts. Parents and caregivers need to stay in the room with the child. Storytime, which lasts approximately 30-45 minutes, is an excellent opportunity to introduce children to the library and to the joy of reading. It is a great way to enjoy read-aloud stories, sing songs, discover new books and make great friends!
Cornelia Library is excited to offer a birthday program for children that would like to celebrate with their Storytime friends.
If your child would like to bring treats to share, make sure to schedule the date with Mrs. Melissa.
A birthday sash will be available to wear during Storytime and the birthday child will receive a special gift from the library.
The Cornelia Library values their relationship with Habersham County Schools, day cares and preschools in educating the youth of this county. The Cornelia Library provides an outreach program to educate children in Habersham County about their local libraries including reading a book and doing a craft with the children. This program is offered to all schools, day cares and preschools in Habersham County. Our goal is to foster a
love of reading for future generations. To schedule a program, please contact Children's Coordinator Melissa Duchaine.
Let your children become familiar with the card catalog through this kid friendly version made just for them.
If your children are having trouble reading, are learning to read or just might like to read to a four-legged, furry pup, this program might be just right! Call the library today to find out when the next "Tail-Waggin' Tutors" program will be offered. (See flyer below for details.)
Beginning the weekend of Sept. 30, Georgia residents will be able to check out a stuffed backpack kit at any of the state’s 400-plus public libraries and, in combination with an already available state ParkPass, take it with them on a free visit to any of Georgia’s State Parks & Historic Sites. Each co-branded kit includes a sturdy, five-pocket backpack containing a pair of 5x30 binoculars, a guide to Georgia’s State Parks & Historic Sites and foldout Pocket Naturalist Guides to Georgia Wildlife, Georgia Birds and Georgia Trees & Wildflowers. The kits are the latest additions to the popular ParkPass library loan program, which will celebrate its 10-year anniversary in the coming year. More than 100,000 families have checked out and used a ParkPass since Georgia Public Library Service and Georgia State Parks & Historic Sites began the program, which has saved residents more than $1 million in admissions and parking fees. “Our goal for these backpack kits is to help families learn about nature and the natural wonders we have throughout the state,” said State Librarian Julie Walker, “and this objective aligns well with the important role that libraries play in education for all Georgians. From backyards and local parks to any — or all — of Georgia’s state parks, historic sites and National Park Service lands, the learning opportunities here are endless.” The loan period for the backpack kits is one week, matching that of the ParkPasses, which must be checked out separately. This project is made possible, in part, with funds provided by a grant to GPLS from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) through the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA).
