Pull the Grandparents in

The Orwell Library offers storyhours with grandparents. Once a month, an Orwell grandparent reads a book of their choosing to the group. Bringing grandparents in has led to storytimes with therapy dogs and cookie parties. Guitar playing and angora bunnies are coming soon.

For more good ideas for storytimes from Vermont librarians, take a look at Vermont’s Early Literacy Initiative. Librarians in the ELI have posted plans that worked. Each storytime reveals the rationale and offers suggested activities. Woodbury Community Library has an easy plan to encourage print motivation and interest in reading. At one storyhour, each parent and child share their favorite book.
