Free Holiday Children’s Program at Boyd Library

Regina Yellin Guest Reader Nov 18“A Child’s View of Winter Holidays” will be the theme of the fourth Saturday Children’s Program at Sandhills Community College. It will be on December 16 from 10-11:30 am.
There will be three guest readers with stories of the season. Rosa McAllister-McRae will present information about Kwanzaa, a mother daughter duo will read a Hanukkah story and local author, Annie Hallinan, will read one of her Christmas children’s book: The Sweetest Christmas Eve. Stories will be read at 10:15 a.m. and 11:00 a.m.
There will be a choice of crafts, a drawing for new books, bookmarks, take away bags, and treats for the children. The children’s section of Boyd Library has available for check-out many holiday books.
Hallinan’s latest book, Brinkley Boyd of Weymouth, will be on sale at the event. All proceeds will be used to create a Children’s Educational Center at the Weymouth Center for Arts and Humanities.
These Saturday sessions, for children in Pre-K -5th grade with an adult, aim to build a culture of reading and a love of books for children and their parents, relatives, or guardians, strengthen family bonds, and remind us all that shared-reading creates powerful memories and a love of the written language.
The first four Saturday programs saw 187 children and parents from across Moore County and averaged 70 participants per session.
