BLUE HILL, Maine — The Blue Hill Public Library is looking for volunteer teenagers interested in reading to young children as part of the Libraryâ€™s â€śReading with the Big Kidsâ€ť program from 3 to 5 p.m. Monday afternoons, at the library.Â Interested volunteers are invited to an orientation from 3:30 to 4 pm. Monday, Sept. 26. There will be an informal introduction on how to read to young children, what sorts of books are good to read and a brief discussion about how the program works. Refreshments will be served.
â€śReading with the Big Kidsâ€ť is an after-school program that frees parents up to use the library while their kids are being read to on Monday afternoons starting Oct. 17, in the Larchwood Childrenâ€™s Room. Parents can browse the library, use a computer or chat with a friend, knowing that their children are having fun. No sign up is necessary; families may just drop in. Children can choose books from the collection or bring his or her favorites to share.
The program is a great opportunity for older kids to reminisce with old favorite books, develop acting skills by reading with expression and basically have fun in a relaxed and non-judgmental setting. For more information, call Pat at 374-5515.
