Story times to begin July 9

NEWTON — Children as young as 6 months old through those entering Kindergarten are invited to Read & Play story times being held at each of the six Sussex County Library locations July 9-August 3.

Read & Plays combine stories, songs, simple activities and free play in a friendly and fun environment that allows the children to choose tasks appropriate for their age.

For children entering grades one through three, Lunch Bunch is a chance to listen to stories while eating lunch, followed by games and activities. The stories and crafts are more sophisticated than the Read & Plays, and encourage children to keep up their reading and fine motor skills over the summer break.

S.T.E.A.M. programs for older children will feature different projects every week that pull from the Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math curriculum, with fun experiments appropriate for children through fifth grade.

For dates, times and details on these weekly programs stop by your local Sussex County Library Branch or go to the Events Calendar link at
