Frog and Toad Visit Spangler Storytime

If you had visited the Spangler Library Family Storytime on Saturday, October 8, 2016, you would have gotten a special treat! The actors from Children's Theatre of Charlotte's current production, A Year With Frog and Toad, popped in as special guests to read the Frog and Toad story "Seeds" to over 100 toddlers, preschoolers, and family members. Other Children's Theatre actors will be stopping into our storytimes in the upcoming months as their shows launch, so mark your calendars now! 
Teen mothers and their children participate in storytime

ImaginOn Hosts a Safe Journey Program

On Thursday, August 18, 2016, ImaginOn hosted a special morning program for a group of teen mothers and their children (ages 0-3) from Safe Journey and Adolescent Parenting Program (APP). The Teen Loft Manager presented the mothers with available opportunities for programming and materials, and then two staff members from Spangler Library conducted a color-themed family storytime with songs and flannels and scarves, followed by an interactive Every Child Ready to Read presentation that featured the early literacy practices of reading, talking, singing, writing, and playing.
