Join Miss Amanda for a virtual Friday Family Hour each week on Facebook. Visit our library Facebook page at 10:30 AM every Friday to join in.
Friday Family Hour meets weekly at 10:30 AM for children pre-K and younger, caregivers and parents. Miss Amanda incorporates simple crafts, stories and songs to stimulate early brain development in the tiniest residents of Newington and their friends.
We incorporate early literacy research-based methods in our Friday Family Hour activities to promote preschool and kindergarten readiness through discovery, play, and social connection. You can read about the Every Child Ready to Read @ Your Library® Six Early Literacy Skills here. These skills are supported by the Public Library Association (PLA) and the Association for Library Services to Children (ALSC).
