On Tuesday, my granddaughter Rose and I attended a program at the Manchester Public Library called Toddling Tots. The children attending were in the age range of 12-24 months. The parents and grandparents were older. We had a great time singing songs, playing with scarves, listening to a story and looking at a book. The program was downstairs in the Howroyd Room.
We arrived a little early and stayed a little bit after the program was over. In the children’s section of the library there were two chairs just the right size for Rose to sit in, puppets to play with and lots of books to look at. The Children’s Department at Manchester Public Library is staffed by four librarians with Master’s of Library Science Degrees. They choose books, read reviews and prepare and present programming with an emphasis on encouraging a love of reading. What could be better?
