SINCLAIRVILLE - Children from the Sinclairville Free Library's Preschool Story Hour learned how to stop, drop and roll when Sinclairville Fire Chief Dave Lukacz and Assistant Joe McKenna visited the library to teach the importance of fire safety. Cassadaga Valley Kiwanis representative Kathy George also stopped by with a new book to read about fire safety for children. The book, "No Dragons for Tea: Fire Safety for Kids" by Jean E. Pendziwol, was donated to the library after George read it to the children.
Throughout the year, children coming to Story Hour have participated in many hands-on opportunities to learn and stimulate a lifelong love of reading: digging for dinosaur bones, creating their own hats and watching the life cycle of butterflies, to name a few. On May 24, the children celebrated the last session of the year by releasing the butterflies they first knew as caterpillars. Story Hour for children ages 3 through 5 will resume in October.
The library's Summer Reading Program for preschoolers will begin with a kick-off and registration on Wednesday from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m., with sessions on Thursdays from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. beginning on June 28 through Aug. 2. For additional information, call the library at 962-5885 or visit the library's website at www.cclslib.org/sinclairville.
