The Butte County Library has received a grant for $2703 to enhance its weekly story times.
Librarian Susie Serrano applied for the grant and said “The Early Learning with Families 2.0 grant will enhance storytimes with music and sensory activities will only make our programming more valuable, and a richer experience for our young patrons, families and caregivers”.
The funds were used to purchase paints, scarves, hoops, beanbags, and story time kits, said Sheryl Hubbard who conducts three weekly story times in Chico” It is so wonderful to be able to enliven our story times with these sensory props. The reaction from the kids has been great, they love to have fun physical activities incorporated into story time”
