to Day Cares
Library welcomes the opportunity to work with day care staff to
create a program or book collection that helps to promote reading,
using the library and instilling in young children a love for
books. The following services are available to day cares and latchkey
Visits to your Day Care
Day care staff is encouraged to call ahead (2-3 weeks in advanced)
to their local Lane Library to schedule a visit (monthly, quarterly,
or just one-time). With enough notice, the visits can be prepared
to meet your day care's curriculum needs. A visit can include a
story time, book talks, or public library tour.
A story time is a wonderful and exciting way for library personnel
to share popular stories, finger plays, puppets, and other book-related
resources with children. A 20-minute story time is designed for
toddlers up to age two. For children ages three through 12, a story
time is 30-45 minutes. Library staff will work with you to create
a program that fits your needs and the time available.
These are presentations designed for elementary age students to
introduce students to new books and other library media. Each talk
is designed around a popular theme to generate excitement and encourage
reading. Book talks are usually 30-45 minutes, but vary depending
on age level.
You may schedule a tour of Lane location for your group. With prior
notice a library tour can also include instruction on how to use
the library's catalog for selecting and locating materials for professional,
school or leisure purposes.
Other services provided to day cares include: teacher card, classroom
collections and Childcraft Literacy Bags. Library staff members
are also available to provide day care staff guidance in the selection
of materials for special projects and/or recreational reading for
the children that they work with.
