Together Book Discussion Series *
6 Saturdays from March 8 – May 17 (see dates below)
1:00 – 2:30 PM
Here’s something to talk about! Wood Library has received a grant to participate in a very special book discussion series for children and their parents. The New York Council for the Humanities’ Together—Book Talk for Kids and Parents program offers a forum for parents and their 9- to 11-year-old children to come together to talk about books and ideas at their local library. The themes of courage, freedom, and being American will be explored at each of the six 90-minute Together sessions. The discussions will be co-facilitated by Mary Ferris, Wood Library’s Children’s Librarian and Tom Poplasky, a retired Elementary School teacher . The scheduled discussion dates are: March 22, and 29, April 12, and May 3, 17, and 31. Each session will focus on a different book and the sessions alternate between picture books and novels. All books will be provided and participating children will get to select one of the books to keep. Child care will be available for younger siblings and snacks will be provided at each session. Registration for the series is required and the program is limited to 15 families. Sign up at the library or call (585) 394-1381.
What could be more fun than turning a cardboard box into a car with your preschooler for them to sit in and watch a fun film at the library? That’s just what will happen at our movie program for preschoolers. And they can take their car home to continue the fun! Open to ages 2-5. Parking space is limited so either call or visit the library to reserve your spot!

The Walkers class is especially for children who are walking and will include movement activities as well as rhymes, fingerplays, and a story.
Children who are not yet walking should come to the Pre-Walkers class which will feature traditional rhymes, bounces, and clapping songs. Each program will include the sharing of a simple storybook.
