Ready2Read Grant

Hobart Public Library Expands Collection for Preschoolers

The Hobart Public Library has received a Ready2Read@Your Library grant, administered by the Oklahoma Department of Libraries and Friends of Libraries in Oklahoma and supported by the Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the American Rescue Plan Act.  The Library has received about $1,500 of preschool materials, designed to enhance pre-reading skills for infants, toddlers and preschoolers and has a grant to purchase $2,000 for early childhood literacy skills development.

Professional storyteller Valerie Kimble will be sharing a great interactive story time of stories, nursery rhymes, songs, puppets, and more. Kimble is a certified media specialist, who worked at the Pioneer Library System for 13 years, and has told stories around the region.

Parents and caregivers are invited to visit the library and learn more about the importance of reading with children to help them learn sounds, increase vocabulary, improve comprehension, and grow to love reading.

Story-time is scheduled for Thursday, February 16th, 2023 from 10:40-11:00 at the Hobart Public Library for infants, toddlers and preschoolers. For more information contact us at 580-726-2535.
