Stephanie Hindin Katz: Keep children’s literacy programs going

Last Monday, Borders Books, Music and Cafe hosted its last Children’s Story Hour. I would like to thank all the children and adults who have shared stories, crafts, activities and snacks with me over the past two-and-a-half years. As the children’s department specialist, it has been my pleasure to watch toddlers grow into chatty, enthusiastic listeners and see some of them become big sisters and brothers. Being part of their lives, introducing them to wonderful children’s literature, and helping them create their inventive and sometimes funny craft projects have been some of the high points of my week.

We will cross paths many times in and around Summit County, and when we do, I would love to hear about all the books you are reading. Parents, please remember how much your children enjoyed our story hours and try to continue the tradition, either at home, at libraries or anywhere else that offers kids’ literary events. With your encouragement, the oral tradition will remain alive and relevant. Once again, thank you so much for the times we spent together, and let’s hope they were not our last.
